300 gallon tank pics in the works

Here are some pics of my 300 gallon tank that i am about done building, the dimensions are 96" long x 31" tall x 24" wide, made with 1/2" glass and has 2 overflows with 2 1.5" bulkheads for overflows and 1-1" bulkhead for return in each overflow, has a steel stand that will be skinned in oak with a dark stain and full of plants and discus. I am using a milwaukee sms-122 ph controller and regulator and bubble counter, going to use aqua medic co2 reactor, question is will 1 reactor be enough? or should i go with 2? this is 1 of the 4 returns that goes into the sump and distributes the water over the filter pad here is one of my discus that cant wait to go in the 300

That is as sweet tank. You are going to need more then one reactor, if you can build your own tank then I sure that you can build 2 reactors yourself and spend the $ on fish and plants. Search around the board and you will find several DIY reactors.
