  1. Have you ever struggled with low PH? Has your coral growth slowed? Have you tried a CO2 scrubber yet? They work very well I assure you! I myself have been a victim of low PH especially in the summer and winter. You see at those times of year I have to keep my home closed up from the elements. I’d love to be able to open up all my windows all the time , but that’s just not realistic or possible with brutal Midwest heat and humidity. Let’s not even discuss bone chilling winters. Not everyone has all of the seasons I do but most of us have at least one time of the year that we can’t have our humble abodes open to the fresh air. This is exactly the time that CO2 scrubber comes in handy! So let me tell you my results with my first CO2 Scrubber. I was having a hard time maintaining 7.8-8.0 Ph on a daily diurnal swing. My coral growth had slowed, my alkalinity and calcium consumption had dropped dramatically and my tank just didn’t look right. Sound familiar?? The search was on for a solution, 😂 My mind begin to work! After some online searching I found some information about CO2 scrubbers . What’s this scrubber thing you speak of? What does it do? What’s the benefits? Well a Ph scrubber is basically a chamber or reactor that holds CO2media ( calcium hydroxide) and (sodium hydroxide). When you pass air laden with Carbon Dioxide through the reactor/scrubber media, the CO2 is absorbed by the media and fresh air continues on to your aquarium. This is generally done by connecting the air intake line of your skimmer to the reactor/scrubber. As CO2 is scrubbed out before fresh air is delivered to the aquarium your PH increases because your skimmer is no longer pumping CO2 laden air into the tank. Genius!! Let me show you a few pictures of what this looks like.😊 So we’ve gone over the basics of what a scrubber is , what it does , and what it helps with. Now we need to chat about one more important thing, the media. How do you know if the media is good? How do you know when it’s bad? How long does it last?.Glad you asked !! 😂 The media is white when it is fresh and in it’s sealed container. It won’t stay that way as it absorbs CO2. The IceCap media will turn Pink in color as it absorbs CO2. Once the media has sufficiently turned Pink it should be removed and discarded. If you leave the media in the scrubber after this point it could turn back to white, but it isn’t actually working any longer.Lets take a quick look at the media when it needs to be changed. At this point you can see the media has been sufficiently used and should be discarded.The time it takes for your to turn from white to pink will vary . Every aquarium and environment is different. Now what’s the point of all this? Well the end result of adding a CO2 Scrubber can substantially help with low PH. My PH now is sustained at 8.0-8.3 during my tanks diurnal swing. That’s a nice increase and my corals are much happier and are again growing wonderfully!

    $80 good condition zeo reactor cleaned and ready to go will ship at buyers expense
  11. I've been running this Avast Marine Spyglass Media Reactor on my Reefer 170 for a few months now and it has worked flawlessly. Planning on converting the place where it's been to a fuge so I no longer have a need for it. Looking to pass along a deal to a fellow reefer. I'm selling it with the Sicce Synchra Nano pump which is perfect for the small reactor. I'll toss in a bag of ME Coral GFO that I have leftover as well. I'll post or can PM pictures of the unit later today. Price - $100 + shipping (reactor plus sicce pump is ~$200 brand new from Avast) -Adam

    Proper way to use Purigen

    I'm setting up a canister reactor of Purigen and was unsure of whether I should allow it to be fluidized. I know that GFO should be allowed to tumble to improve it's exposure with water and that activated carbon needs to have less motion to keep it from grinding itself into fines but I can't find a solid answer for Purigen. It seems like it should be allowed to fluidize but I want to make sure.

    Purigen Reactor, Fluidized or Not?

    So, I'm building three hang on the side reactors (GFO, Carbon, and Purigen) for the 29 gal AIO tank I'm building. I know that the GFO should be allowed to tumble and the carbon should have only a very slow motion so it doesn't grind itself into fines but I am having trouble finding info on the proper way to set up the Purigen reactor. Will the Purigen grind itself down or does it benefit from staying fluidized in the reactor?
