Nice one mate, I'm getting happier with it now.

For the 1 the Guy wants £225 but I saw the thread that he bought it on about 2 years ago and he only paid £200 so that pee'd me off a tad.

The other is a 2 and he wants £300 but im trying to get it down, think the 2 is the best option, especially if a bigger tank gets aproval!!!! But im thinking price at the moment, Ive had a bit of a blow out last few weeks and im nearly empty for this month.

Well done mate. Bit of a beast that reactor. The 1 is a good reactor. Cant say I've got mine dialed in yet but it is very good. Have you got a peri pump for it?

Ive just spent another hour rescaping the left side as it looked a bit poo.

Im so happy with it I may scrap the pipe idea :sign_lol: .......will have to see.

I was reading ultimate marine mag this afternoon and its added to my confusion on what lights to go for, you set the idea in my head t'other day about going 10k.... now i see Amazing tanks and the colours are looking amazing with t5's.

I know the growth will be so much better with halides but im in a catch 22 for colour as well.

I have 500ml in my reactor which is about half what I need, if I go by the product info.

I was thinking to reduce it by half again see how I get on. But then my bio-load on the system is next to nothing at the moment with only 7 fish, 5 of which are small.

To be honest the size of my skimmer and with it running inline with my return, the cheato and the corals i cant see the use for pearls at the moment. Would it work to run them only at night? wonder how that would pan out?

any Ideas
