Such an excellent write up. Thanks so much!

I had a question regarding a reactor, are these necessary? Because I didn't see you mentioned anything about them in your post and almost everyone seems to have them..

Necessary, no. But they help with CO2 diffusion. Usually, you will want some method of CO2 diffusion, whether it be a reactor, a glass diffuser with a ceramic disc, an inline atomizer, etc.

A reactor is usually inline, so does not take up real estate with the aquarium, and furthermore is generally very efficient at dissolving CO2.

Thank you for the quick response Darkblade!

I will continue using a glass diffuser and see how it goes.
