Hiii friends........ :lol:

After a long 9 months patience.... My ATS show the result......

Today I measured Nitrate and Phosphate of my tank. And it's zero now. 8-)

First I measured NO3 with my Salifert test kit. Then to tally.... Again rechecked with Sera Marine test kit. Result remain the same.

It's my opinion that, if our salty hobbyists once understand the chemistry of an ATS perfectly and able to make a suitable ATS for their tank.... Then they will never go for a costly protein Skimmer and will invest the money for few eye candy fishes or inverts. :mrgreen:

@Rameez : Well bro...... My DIY:ATS is very simple. I've made it according to my tank necessity and also depending upon the space available in my sump. I'll never say that it's ideal. But the fact is I've made it depending upon the basic chemistry of an ATS.
if you go through the net, you will get thousands of diagram and models. But the basic thing is same.
As my tank to sump outlets are fixed with pvc glue, so it was impossible for me to connect one of them with the spray bar. So I used an additional power head for the water supply through the spray bar.
Red light is the most essential part of ATS. So I've used 2pcs red cfl with reflector. And rest of the parts are easy. Here's the pics.......
