I am currently in the process of installing my new SCA- Rimless 150 & I am in the market for a new Calcium reactor. i would love to hear your thoughts and opinions especially if you have one of these reactors running on your display currently? Also, maybe share some pictures of how you have yours set up!! I will be also buying the Carbondoser electronic CO2 reg w/ John Guest fitting as well for what ever reactor i decide to go with. Here are the reactors that I have narrowed it down to.

I think I have a pic of mine.

This is a very old pic indeed. My sump is now in basement and the pump is a blueline, not the Little Giant. Still the same except the tubing that I replace yearly. :)

Impressive that you are still running the old little giant pump. My Pro-Cal is close to 20 years old and I replaced the pump long ago ..... and have heavily modified it to handle a larger tank. It's now a three stage ... CO2 reaction chamber, large rubble chamber and the a CO2 scrubbing chamber. Unit is fed via a masterflex peri pump.

No, the little giant died. I have a blue line on it. I have had this reactor running for 12 years and it was bought used. Just great equipment. I have made a few adjustments and replaced some minor things things.
