    Ok so i spent most of the day setting up the Aquacontroller , allthough i have yet to get to any programming i thought i'd post some pics of what i did.

    I had to make a little bracket for the unit so i could see it through the glass doors on the tank.


    I made a small bracket out of acrylic to hold the probes in place







    And here is a pic of the aquacontroller through the tank doors

    TangMan, why have the return pump and skimmer on it? I dont see any program to shut them ever, so why program it in?
