Beautiful work. What is an ATO? And why does it need to be close to another tank? Thanks for the help!
An ATO is an Automatic Top Off. It fills the tank back up with freshwater to compensate for evaporation. It doesn't necessarily need to be close to the tank. Most people have it close so that they don't have to run a long line from the water container to the their tank.

How’s the tank going?
It’s going great. Thank you for asking! Here’s an updated photo; however, it does need a good glass cleaning.

Just before the holiday, I finally relocated my 20g Nuvo frag tank, as well as installed a simple ATO that feeds both tanks. 2 of the 3 anemones are currently on the backside of the rockwork.

Next on my agenda:
•sell some cheap frags to make room in the frag tank
•organize the frag tank
•Install a door on the Nem Tank Canopy
•Build a Frag Tank Canopy (to hide the light, and to move the ATO reservoir lower)
