I would be more inclined not to set up a drip based WC system, just because there's no way to stop it, just in case either component fails. Since youre going away for 3 weeks, just do a big WC just before you leave, and skip 2 weeks of WCs (happens all the time with me, even when I'm at home!).

It might require some TLC to get it back up to speed after you come back, but that's much preferred to a catastrophic tank emptying (for the tank and the floor) that could occur with your siphon and drip based system.

I was hoping to see more updates on your tank but you've decided to shut it down

I still have mine running since October 2011. Here's a video I took in February and looks more or less the same today. I continue to do water changes weekly. It's my first marine tank. All is good except the stubborn coralline algae that's starting to appear.

Nice tank man! I was pretty good with keeping up with water changes on the Edge, how are you dealing with ATO did you set one up? I did a diy that Im no longer using and might sell with my tank.

Also that bio load would definitely require you keep up with water changes, I only ever had one fish in there at a time, Ive seen 3 adult fish in an edge as a safe max like what you have (2 clowns and a goby).

did you mod your filter? Chemi-pure elite changed my tank from ok to ridiculous but Im happy that Im done with HOB filters that can leak like the cheap AC20 the edge came with.
