I recently bought a reservoir and a Tunze ATO and am wanting to try using Kalk. but I don't want to mix it in the reservoir. I ordered the Two Little Fishes Kalk. Reactor 300 from BRS and now am second guessing if this one will work for a tank as small as mine. I know they can get expensive and I am not wanting to spend too much on one. Any ideas or thoughts? Stick with this reactor and test it out? Does/ has anyone had any luck with this reactor on a nano?

If smaller than say a 60g it will be fine for your size tank. Just make sure you don't overdose kalk. That can be easily done in a small tank like yours.

In that size reactor I would put 1 teaspoon to start. Monitor your levels and adjust. Your tank will tell you if it wants more or if it wants less.
