I have a BM200 on a 180g sps tank.
It works great. I have it placed in the sump on a stand in 6 1/2" of water. It has a gate valve and really once it is set, needs no adjusting.

2 days with AC running

Ph 7.85 @ 8:45am

Ph is getting lower, but not as quickly. Maybe because AC isn't running all night. The nights are cooler now.
