LED tank indicator panel for bathroom

I was wondering if there was a way to tie into the built in level indicators on the black tank and create a new LED panel to mimic the (in my case) 1/2 and 4/4 lights that are present at the main control panel. It could maybe be an always on or a switched on/off panel. To me it would make good sense to have it there in the bathroom.
May be fun to watch the tank fill real time and perhaps even some audio... Anyway.

Want to try this question again (no response the 1st time). To sum up, my black tank level indicators are connected to the wires that run to the main panel with male/female connectors. Access is great and with a short wire run of each of the three wires, was thinking of making a mini display with indicator lights of black tank status on the bathroom wall. Any ideas? Seems it would be simple (but so has everything else so far at first, I'm starting to know better). I am also moving my fan switch, so I thought I might include it in the same panel.

I'm sure it would be possible but I think it would be easier to use a gauge than lights. You might find someone who has taken out their Central Control panel and take out the relevant parts from it and rework into the bathroom.

If you want to understand (ad nauseum) how your control panel works, you can plow through this thread.

For an improved microprocessor control panel, take a look here.
