Wiskey, did you ever run a MRC calcium reactor?I’m trying to figure out my circulation pump size. It’s a MR6. I’m not in a big hurry, it will be awhile before I use it.
Neah,.. I did have one of their beckett skimmers, but I cheeped out on the CA reactor and got one used that was no name. Later, with my 75G I picked up a used Geo. I will never use a CA reactor again without a continuous duty parasitotic pump to drive it BTW. I had too many things clog up the little needle valve over the years. Now I use Trident and Triton to monitor it, plus the DOS pumps to dose it.Wiskey, did you ever run a MRC calcium reactor?I’m trying to figure out my circulation pump size. It’s a MR6.

you are correct, originally it came with blue line pump and a maxi jet. I will just change an go with a dc pump to replace the blue line and get something in place if the maxiI can tell you though that this CA reactor originally came with a BlueLine 20 pump which I'm assuming is broken or missing for you, it was 480gph. I would probably use one that is slightly larger by Ehiem, they make good, quiet, reliable pumps.
As I recall they also didn't come with the pump(s). The MaxiJet was for feeding the CA Reactor as I recall, I would replace that with one of these and remove the needle valve:you are correct, originally it came with blue line pump and a maxi jet.

Somewhere along the way i no longer have them. I imagine I used someplace else.
I also had a mr2 which I sold to a friend
Yep! Trident is an Apex product. You can use it to run Triton, regular 2 part, or a CA reactor, or do anything you want really and have it in monitor mode. I had mine making adjustments early on, but found that it can get the odd bad test so I decided on more of a monitoring role for it and I react to trends rather than every result.Thanks Wiskey, I just looked at pictures of my MR2 and it had a mag pump. I will look into the link you put.
Trident works with the apex? I lost all mine in the flood and have been put getting another. Just the cost to replace. I loved it. I didn’t have trident and don’t know if it was even available in 2016 or was new at that time.
I will read up on it.
Is THAT where your preferred lfs is? What kind of Fish have you got yer sights on? Going to be a fish heavy' tank, or just a fish or two to give the tank some movement?Water test are good on this tank, I can start adding some fish at anytime. Now to get motivated to drive to Baton Rouge.
