    I purchased a used a Myreefcreations CR-6. It is a dual chamber reactor. It has a pinpoint PH monitor, PH, blue line pump. It has the T adapter so you can check the effulent going from the first chamber to the second. It also has the regulators and bubble counter. I have a few questions. 1) I...

  8. The THINK Tank
    When I first set up a calcium reactor several years ago, I read that the best way to tune them was by testing the effluent pH. I got that advice from articles like the following: http://www.reefkeeping.com/issues/2002-05/sh/feature/index.php But, after almost overdosing my tank (alk shot...

    I recently ordered a Pinpoint pH Controller and it has the ability to controller pH both high and low. I am hooking the high to my calcium reactor. I was thinking of adding a DIY Kalk reactor hooked up to the controller for raising pH if and when it got low. then I would just have a container...

    I am looking for a set of instructions for a calcium reactor. I am building a DIY dual chamber reactor but would just like to read thru a set of instructions from a regular reactor like a knop, k2r, or any other. A data file or hard copy would do. I would pay someone for a photo copy. Eric...

    If so, what have you noticed? Before and after. Any brands preferences? Rowaphos, Phosban, etc.. How do you apply these? A bag in the sump doesn't work unless you shake it up daily. So have you gone with reactors like the Deltec $$-model, or the Two Little Fishies Phosban Reactor 150 thats...

    I was wondering, if most of you that run Calcium reactors use a single or double chamber reactor? If I understand these things the second chamber is only to remove excess Co2 before the influent is pumped back to the tank? I have an AquaC EV 240 and it has a fitting to run the influent through...

    Is anyone using any kind of flow measuring device on their ca reactor? I'm thinking about something like the Dwyer flow meters for effluent control but I want to talk to someone that's using them first.

    Hi TRT, Doing some research on Calcium sources for my system. I started thinking about what to use and the question waved at me: Should I use a CO2 calcium reactor or a Nielsen Reactor ? You, experienced fellas out there: What do you prefer? One or the other, or both? Does tank size have...
