500ml started on 400g of volume today!
I customized a Avast 4x18 reactor by removing the stock insert and adding my DIY cone mod and plumbing. The reactor is being fed from my main return line via a valve. I really didnt want to have to add another pump. The reactor is located in my sump. If something leaks, at least its contained.
Start up went fine, more of just getting the flow dialed for now really. Pellets (TLF) had been soaking in RO prior for 24hrs and are now tumbling really well. I started using Seachem Stability to the system a couple days ago and added some to the reactor after adding the BP tonight as well. Reactor output is about 2" away from the skimmer opening. I plan on adding another 500ml of BP in a few weeks if all goes well.
Right now Im just hoping my system doesnt blow up the day before Christmas. This is new ground for me.
NO3: 1+ ppm
PO4: .12 ppm (Hanna)
BRS: Carbon Reactor running
What do you think..little too fast for now?
