I'm starting a 32 Gallon Bio Cube and Need to get an ATO. What do you recommend? The 2 I am looking into are the Tunze 3155 or the JBJ with a BRS 50ml Pump. Do you recommend any of these or any others? I'd prefer not to spend a lot but if the cheaper ones are garbage I don't want them. Thanks!

I've had great luck with both of those ATO's on small tanks. I always used the JBJ with an aqualifter so I can't speak to the BRS pump in this configuration but I've run that pump for auto water change on a small tank with sucess.

I think it will really come down to whether you want float switches or optical switches. The float switches need a bit more room and are a bit prone to build up causing them not to slide. The optical seamed to need cleaning more as debrit and coraline will set them off just like water will.
