That's how I landed two concoa 312 regulators for under $80 each. You'd be surprised what some are willing to sell stuff for. If you're the only one bidding you might just get lucky.

It's actually a dual stage. Awhile back the company released a schematic and there are in fact two tiny chambers that allows the reg to reduce the pressure in two steps. As far as I know it's the...

Seneye also has a PAR meter that retails for about $170. And it's apparently comparable to the apogee. http://www.seneye.us/seneye-reef-par-meter.html

That's actually higher PAR than any of the XB fixtures. I think the 10k is the highest PAR already. I met Cara and Nick Klasse in person last April, very nice folks. One piece of advice they both...

Most of those commercial reactors work fine, the problem is most often human error. If you want good diffusion with a reactor, it will cut down your flow, no matter what. So don't worry about that...
