    I have a Gen-X CO2 regulator by pacific coast imports. It has a solenoid and a needle from MRC http://www.myreefcreations.com/caaccessories.htm at the bottom of the page. Currently the regulator is putting out an output pressure of 25. That is just a touch higher than I want. There isn't any big...

    Hi all, I thought I'd chronicle my new tank. I had seahorses about 4 years ago and that tank had been sitting idle so I decided to start it up again. After some research I realized that the old tank was too small. Old Tank I was very reluctant to change from this tank not because of cost...

    For all of you that drip kalk- how much do you mix at a time? I was just reading how it looses it's effectiveness rather quickly. I've been making about 2.5-3 gallons at a time depending on the time of year that it is and how much evap I have and it lasts me about a day for my 40gal. So I am...

    Did I see someone with a Nilsen reactor for sale last night? I spent most of the time talking to people (which was great), but my brain didn't process "Hey, is that a Nilsen reactor?" until this morning. I hope everyone enjoyed their candy canes.

    If you were to start a 58G SPS/LPS/clam reef (36x18x21) tank today. How would you set it up and why? (LR/Sand) Equipment nad why? (pumps/lighting/skimmer/etc) How long to stage the tank before adding inhabitants?
  19. General Reef Discussion
    I may have ditched the idea of going with a controller for now and put my money towards a reactor to keep my calcium levels up. I was thinking of either a Nilsen Reactor or a Kalkwasser reactor. Any thoughts on either? Should I get one with a powerhead agitator or a magnetic agitator?
