I am set up for socks, but not running them. The gfo and carbon hangs in bags in the drain compartment below the baffle to the fuge. Just not sure how well the flow is for it.I've read that GFO/carbon works if you add it to the socks, as well (sorry, I don't remember if you're set up for sock filtration). Reactor not necessary. Not done it myself, but might work well.
Agreed. Nothing will change.Something to ponder when running GFO and what I think a lot of people do (I know I was guilty of it) is they test and see a high PO4 number then overeact by loading up the GFO reactor and cutting off feading... I say feed as you normally do after you setup the reactor. Keep things as close to a normal routine as possible with your only variable being the gfo and flow through it. You're more likely to see a gradual drop off this way as opposed to drastically cutting off your input while aggresively removing. Hope that makes sense.
