    Default Opinion On Calcium Reactor

    ok I know it's not the most vital piece of equipment
    but it seems to make the hobby allot simpler and help
    corals to really grow.. I went to a local store today
    that was supposed to have knowledge about the units I
    left disappointed. they only carry two models the
    Coralife and Deltec the Coralife is cheep in my
    opinion and the Deltec was 500 bucks I only have a 130
    gallon tank,just for the unit. been doing allot of
    looking and I keep coming back to this unit
    http://www.myreefcreations.com/castandard.htm looking
    at the CR1 or CR2 and I can get a monitor and all for less
    then that Deltec.

    It all depends on what you think is simpler.If you think more equiptment/elctronic controllers/CO2 regulators,etc.. are simple than a calcium reactor is for you.For me,simple is this.The less equiptment/electronics you have,the less you have to worry about.A simple gravity fed kalk doser that's fed by a float-valve is just as effective at maintaining alk/cal as a calcium reactor.Unless you have a tank that has such a high demand for bicarbonate/carbonate and calcium than typical methods can maintain then i see no reason to have a calcium reactor.
