Need help figuring out what to do on my next build and what equipment to run. Currently I mix kalk in a 5 gal pail then transfer it to my ATO. It keeps my Ph, calcium and alkalinity stable. I’ve been considering a calcium reactor but my pH is already low 7.8 and I’ve heard they can lower pH. Can you run both pieces of equipment at once or is it one or the other? Does one benefit more than the other?

I run a calcium reactor and use saturated kalk with an ATO. With the alk demand in my tank, the kalk probably doesn’t do much if anything. It will keep stuff from growing in the top off reservoir if nothing else.
