Happy Friday Reef2Reefers!


We're super busy collecting data and running tests for BRStv Investigates, so to tide you over until the next full feature episode, here's a little ReefFAQs shorty about using Jdiek's calculator to tune your calcium reactor! :)

Hi Reefers,

Hoping you can help me out - I recently bought the Pacific Sun Pro v2 Calcium Reactor w/ optical sensor (LINK) filled the main chamber with DaStaCO2 Pro Cal PURE Media (LINK) and the degassing chamber with Two Little Fishies Reborn aragonite media (went this route due to the lower PH due to it being a fully saturated solution).

My question for two-part:
- Does anyone have experience with this system - it's been next to impossible to find any good videos or long term testimonials in English and from the US?

- Switching from 2-part to Ca rx- Using the Reef Diesyst calculator (LINK) it assumes an effluent per min (for example), however, given my unit runs on a peristaltic pump that engages at a preset amount per min/hour (e.g., 3L per day) - How would I track and measure this to know how much to calculate at first?

Thank you for your thoughts and words of wisdom.
Look forward to your replies or DM (IG @aarondus)

Smart reefing,
Aaron
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
