my XP1 came in today... which means i finally hooked up the cylinder that's been sitting around. i wrestled with the thing for about 4 or 5 hours trying to figure out how to get the da*n thing to prime. turns out my diy reactor design was pretty poor. i thought i'd be able to burp it with a bleeder i installed... long story short, gallon of water on the floor, screaming as i untangle tubes and airline, laughig roomates, scared fish.... got it.
i guess its all a learning experience. next reactor design will be much more pimp. whats a good starting bubble rate to avoid a ph crash? im running 1 bubble every 3/4 seconds?
