Kalkwasser Stirrer / Reactor 300 - Two Little Fishies
Two Little Fishies Kalkwasser Stirrer/Reactor has a patent-pending design by Julian Sprung. Designed with an upflow principle to achieve the most efficient use of Kalkwasser. By pushing top-off water upward through the calcium hydroxide, it automatically mixes it to achieve a supersaturated kalkwasser solution. Mount on the back of your aquarium or below your tank. Includes check valve and flexible connection fittings that rotate 180° to suit your installation.
- Very convenient design that can be mounted hanging on the back of the aquarium or below the aquarium.
- Includes check valve and flexible connection fittings that rotate 180 degrees to allow a perfect custom fit to your installation.
- Threaded lid design makes adding calcium hydroxide or servicing quick and easy.
- Model 300 for aquariums up to 300 gallons.
- Height: 15.25"
- Width: 5"
- Reactor Diameter: 4"
- Inlet/Outlet: 1/2 inch

I would not recommend the X1 or any other non-continuous duty peristaltic pump for use on a kalkwasser reactor or ATO. The main reason for this is the fact that these pumps are not designed to move large volumes of water. They are also not designed to create the flow needed to stir the kalkwasser in a reactor like this one.
If you are set on using a perstaltic pump I would recommend going with the Kamoer FX-STP, the Neptune DOS, or the EcoTech Versa.
I hope this helps!

Its meant to be hooked up inline on your auto top off system. That way your auto top off just adds a little bit all day as water evaporates. If not using it that way, you want to use a very slow pump (like an aqualifter) and run it frequently for very short bursts (to avoid a spike in pH) as necessary to keep up with your calcium and alkalinity needs. Test your parameters over the coarse of a week and if they go down, you need to add a bit more and vice versa.
