    So I just saw this on craigslist with a bunch of other stuff. Was wondering if anyone knew anything about it? What if I took the bio balls out and added live rock instead? Kinda nice to have the auto top off and everything all together. Just wondering about it, thanks!

    There was a lady years ago that had a thread about having problems with that system.That was the only time I ever heard of anybody using it.Personally,I would go with something else.

    I cant give any review on that system since I have never used it or heard anything about it. However, 9 times out of 10, all in one products tend to sacrifice performance for convinience. This goes for many aspects in life and not just aquariums.

    I read some reasonable reviews of it but i gotta agree with bj... If one piece goes awry then you are just left with a big piece of plastic

    Yeah, I think I'm going to pass on it. I was just curious because it seemed so unique. I'm trying to figure out an auto top off for my tank atm...
