andy Posted November 24, 2010 Share Posted November 24, 2010 Since fish-only tanks don't need Kalk Reactors, I'm getting rid of mine. This is a quality 18" tall, 6" diameter DIY reactor made with a cell-cast acrylic body. Since it's a large reactor (2.25 gallon), in most cases it only needs stirring once daily -- if your tank uses more than 2 gallons of top-off daily, you might consider setting the stirring rate to twice a day. It's plumbed with3 x 1/4" John Guest quick-connect fittings (in, out, bleed) but I'll include a quick-connect to airline adapter if you need one. The stirring pump is an Eheim 1250 with a worn impeller (kalk is abrasive). The impeller will need replacing someday (it rattles when stirring) but at 1/day stirrings I think it's got at least another year in it. I'll also toss in two pounds of Mrs. Wages lime. Not included: a feed pump (I use an Aqua-lifter), an ATO controller of some kind, a timer for the stirring pump, or the delicious Yukon Gold potatoes shown in the picture. Well, I suppose I could include a potato or two if that's a deal-breaker. I'm asking $100 even, which I think is a pretty good deal. The Eheim pump alone sells for that new, and they last basically forever. PM if you're interested. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
