A calcium reactor is used to maintain a balanced amount of calcium and alkalinity in your reef tank. In order to use a calcium reactor, you will need a CO2 regulator, CO2 tank, pH probe/controller, small feed pump (flow rate should be set 1-2 liters per hour) and calcium reactor media.
Well Stocked Tank - Rated up to 700 gallons
Medium Stocked Tank - Rated up to 800 gallons
Light Stocked Tank - Rated up to 1000 gallons

Awesome reactor. By Brian on 4/6/2014Brian would recommend this product to a friendThis is my first Calcium reactor so I don't have a lot to compare it to.
I bought the electronic regulator , Milwaukee PH controller, ARM extra course media and Zeo Mag.
If you have a Hanna Alk checker it will make dialing it in much easier as you can see small up/downs in the alk easier than with a drop test kit.
It's been a few months now and I believe my tank is so much more stable. I would say i have a medium SPS load and the PH barely blinks from night to day. The dual reactor I'm sure helps a lot.
I still have my dosing pumps that sit in standby but haven't really needed them. I much prefer the reactor since I don't have to mix up anything.
Fittings and quality are all top notch. I would put a rubber pad under the pump so it doesn't have any hum noise.
Also order a couple of extra PH calibration fluid packs.
