Where do you all put your external reactors?? On the inflow or outflow side of the canister?? And what is your reasoning????
I finally got my 75 gallon finished and loaded. The first 5 days have gone well with plants/fish/algae. I need to rebuild my reactor. I am probably only getting 50-60% dissolved(even after it goes through my xp3 I am still getting lots of bubble out my spray bar). I made it 12" long, 2" diameter, and had 4-5 bio-balls in it. It is on the intake side of the canister. I am considering putting it on the output side and increasing the size and mayby adding a scrub pad and or more bio-balls in it. My controller is working fine but I have to have a very high bubble count to keep the pH/kH/CO2 close to inline(7.4/21) Yes we have solid water. Any suggestions or ideas would help.
Thanks for all of your help so far, expecially Rex.
