  5. Will take note of the alkalinity levels in the morn , afternoon and night and update this thread
  6. Hey Leon , thank you for the detailed write up , i was aiming for 40ml per min but that wasnt possible with my set up as it eventually came to a stop in the matter of days . The pH that i have set is about 6.7(try to go as high as possoble to decrease alk output as my tank requirements is not that high) The lowest it will hit is 6.5 , but generally stays at 6.7-6.8. The maxijet is used to feed only the calcium reactor , but i modified it such that water flows out of another opening as well , rationale is to not let the pump overheat. Im currently using a pinch valve that came along with the reactor The dilemma im having right now is that my tank's alkalinity demand is not very high since most of my corals are still frags or mini colonies. A cr is needed as kalk alone isnt able to keep up. Thus im trying to dial back my reactor by : 1) cutting my media to just 1/3 of the reactor capacity 2) raising the chamber's pH to 6.7-6.8(i found that 6.8 is still able the melt the media im using which is crushed corals) 3) cutting down on the effluent output (but im giving up on this. It seems to be impossible since low drip rate means clogging and hence unstable addition of alkalinity into the tank) I am now trying to include a timer into my setup after recieving advises from fellow reefers and resding articles online , however there seems to be another problem. Where should the timer be placed? The solenoid or the feed pump? If the timer was placed at the solenoid , theres a few issues thst i can foresee (please check my logic on this): 1) It takes a few hours for pH to rise above 6.8 when the solenoid is switched off , thus alkalinity will continue to be pumped into the tank after switch is offed , and it wjll alsl take another few hours before for pH to drop back to 6.7-6.8 when solenoid is switched on If the timer was placed at the feed pump : 1) the chamber remains at 6.7-6.8 thus cr continues to melt and when the timer switches the pump on , alot of dkh will be dumped to the tank in a short span of time . (On the other hand i was thinking there must be a saturation point for the ca co3 ions and therefore once a certain level conc is achieved in the chamber , the media would stop melting, unsure about this theory though) 2) there could be an accumilation of CO2 bubbles (tried it out yesterday and it did indeed happen) 3) bacteria build up? Im not sure Anyways for now , i am putting my solenoid on a timer for 7h , assuming first 3h is to bring the pH down to below 6.8 , i would be left with 4h to melt the media , and assuming it takes about an hour to rise above 6.8 , i would have a total of about 5h run time for the CR. What are your thoughts? Im keen to find out how you guys would run your calcium reactors
  7. Hello guys , recently , ive been trying to tune my calcium reactor to meet the needs of my tank , but am unable to do so. The effluent drip rate reduces over time and eventually coming to a stop in about a week, even tho its on a fairly high drip rate. Im using a bubble magus wp200 calcium reactor , fed by a maxijet 1200 pump. Any advice?
  8. alright thanks marcovan , i will contact him!!
  9. Looking for pvc needle valve meant for controlling cr effluent output! Drop me a message if u have , 92388122
  10. Looking for skimz 152 cr / deltec pf601 / reef octopus etc rated for 5ft tanks , drop me a message!

  12. 2 rather big blue stag frags each 30 sgd (3inches or so multi branched) Smaller one at 25 sgd (2 inch or so) 1 jade green digi frag 15 1 yellow tip , greenish blue body tort 25
  13. hmms but how does one control the levels accurately? It seems that over dosage of certain elements can be toxic and is quite possible
  14. Hello fellow reefers , My tank utilizes dried corals in a calcium reactor to keep up with calcium , alk and magnesium levels. There are numerous articles online which suggests that majority of trace elements are found in the living tissue of corals , thus one cannot solely rely on the use of a dried coeals in carxs to replenish trace elements in their tanks. Hence i was looking into AF coloration programme which is similar to the balling method , however it is designed to be used in two part solutions , therefore this leads to my question , how does one utilize such products in conjunction with a CArx?
