The AutoAqua Smart ATO Micro is the smallest auto top-off system available today. This makes it especially great for nano aquariums that don’t have a lot of extra space inside the tank.
How small is it? The level sensor is about the same diameter as a penny! If you install the sensor in your Nano tank, you’ll never notice it’s there. The magnetic mounting system is tiny but works on glass, plastic and painted surfaces up to ½" thick. The optical sensor has no moving parts. No float switches. Nothing to get stuck. The sensor can be mounted in a sump or directly in the aquarium.
Installation is quick and easy; no programming or adjustments are needed. Simply place the water level sensor at the desired water height in the sump or aquarium. As the water evaporates the sensor will turn on the DC water pump in your freshwater reservoir. You can use a bucket or an aquarium to hold the make-up water. When the pump refills the aquarium to the desired height, the Smart Mini Controller shuts off the pump.
AutoAqua incorporated their QST (Quick Security Technology) into the ATO’s monitoring system. The Smart Mini Controller records the time it takes to top off the aquarium the first time you turn it on. If at any time the refill pump runs longer than three times the initial top off time, the system sends out an audible alert and turns on a blinking red LED. The refill pump also includes a siphon breaker to prevent backflow into the reservoir.
AutoAqua, one of the outstanding intelligent aquarium providers in the world, aims to design and manufacture small, safe and smart automatic aquarium products.

The Smart ATO comes with the patented contactless digital sensor that monitors and automates refilling evaporated water. The Smart ATO Micro is designed especially for nano tanks has an incredibly small sensor uniquely coupled with a magnet.
Smart AWC Touch, one of their newer products, is an automatic water change and auto top off all-in-one system. It reduces aquarists’ time and effort doing water changes and topping off their tank. All a hobbyist needs to do is set up optical level sensors and pumps and program their water change process using an included LCD touch panel. Then you can perform water changes automatically according to your desired frequency and refilling speed. Smart AWC Touch also employs Quick Security Technology providing real-time protection to prevent any failure situation.
