    Welp I had a great tank day today :) I got a water change done, just a smaller 20L basic one with nothing special or siphoning to it lol. Mainly because I had to put 5L into the new reactor to fill it up :) I've got it cranking out the good stuff now with Caribsea ARM media in it! Going to start with the pH set to 7 and slowly work it down from there without changing the effluent flow rate :) And just work on getting my level happy and I did a little cord management and mounted the controllers, here's my fancy control room!

    And the reactor, a Geo's Reef CR618!

    It really is! Super way overkill but loads of fun haha

    Nope :p I did inspect it thoroughly as I was pouring it in lol then proceeded to turn the reactor on without having tightened the lid haha all running smooth now though!

    Hey Dom,
    Welcome to the CALRX club!
    Interested as to what you have to run your PH at in your reactor.
    I have mine set
    on at 6.28
    Off at 6.21
    All the research you do will tell you not to go below 6.5 however ARM dose FA untill you get well below that .

    I'm happy to be part of it! I've got it set to a dribble/slow trickle and I had the pH at 6.9 and the alk was at 10.9dKH last night... ooops
    So I've turned it to 8 pH to get the alk back down again haha. Once it's at 7.5dKH I'll start again lol
