Did you buy the A360/100, the A360/200 or the A360/400? How expensive was shipping from the UK?

Curious about the size as well. I've read good things about the Pax Bellum reactors and curious about your results with Cleartide.
What size is your tank that you are you running it on?

Interesting, esp if you don't have room for a fuge

Question, in the first pic, is the lid just not tightened properly or is it warped?

2 weeks in, good growth, noticed that algae in display tank is not as strong and it's easier to remove
