  1. So, forgive me, I’m still under a year with corals and have a lot to learn. My coral are now absorbing alkalinity, so I’m dosing about 20 ml of Fritz 2 part Alk. I am not dosing the cal or mg yet as I would like those lower still. Cal closer to 430, mg closer to 1380 ish. So, I always thought when you dose ALK, your cal goes down some, then when you dose Cal, your Alk goes down a bit. Why in the world is my cal and mg rising when I dose my Alk?!?!?! I’m so lost.
  2. Decided to build my own calcium reactor after doing alot of research on them and ended up with this.I was looking a for a good cost effective build and I really liked the look and simplicity of Geo's reef reactors, but for the size I needed, the price was a bit high, especially since they only came with a.c. pumps. So this one will be able to handle systems up to 300 gallons plus another hundred if a secondary reaction chamber is added onto it. My total cost for everything, including tools and solvent cements was $127.89. (Seems like a pretty good price for a D.C. Calc. Reactor)
  3. Anybody have a calcium reactor they'd be up for selling? Would need one for a approx. 260 gallon system. I will probably just end up building one but wanted to see if anyone had one.
  4. So what is a good way to lower calcium and alkalinity? I put a calcium reactor in to stabilize my parameters which worked for about a month then in the last couple weeks I noticed they were increasing as of tonight (based on API tests, I have more of my Hanna reagents ordered) the alk was at about 14dkh and calcium was at around 560ppm usually I like my alk around 9-10. I have always thought that alk and calcium were alternates (when one is high other is low) but right now I’m seeing different. any ideas would be helpful, gonna need to re adjust the calcium reactor soon cause it’s atarting to get low on CO2
