Question Anyone here selling DIY reactors?

Sometime down the line, I'm looking to pick up 4 PVC style reactors. Is there anyone on the forum making or selling these?

Put an ad in the Swap n Shop forum asking this question. You are far more likely to get responses there.

to be honest, these things are so simple to make you're better off dropping $30 on the material to make all 4!

If you decide to make your own definately go with a barbed connection for the co2 tubing to go in the side of the reactor. The pull the pipe through a slightly smaller hole thing is just not very functional especially when you could end up draining your entire aquarium if it fails.
