View Full Version : 10 gallon for autotopoff and calcium/alkalinity container

So I have this idea of turning a 10 gallon tank into a top off and dosing chamber all in one. I would use glass baffles to have an 8 gallon top off reservoir and 2 one gallon reservoirs. Is this a good idea to have it all in one? Anybody ever done this before?

Sure thats fine... provided you don't have any leaks..

I will be using glass baffles instead of acrylic for a more secure fit and I will certainly be doing a leak test on all 3 chambers. See my progress so far.

Make sure baffles are shorter than width by 1/8" for a good silicone joint.
Acrylic will warp over time, you might want to avoid that by some thick vertical strips on the cover to prevent it & act as a handles to pick it up.
