Inline up atomizer & Reactor together is it bad?

Hi

I disconnected the co2 from the reactor which is on the outflow of the filter and used a one way valve to stop the water from coming out the reactor through the co2 intake. I then added an inline up atomizer on the inflow.

Do you guys think I should remove the reactor? Is it any better or any worse if I keep it without feeding in co2?

Thanks

I don't think it would hurt anything. I'm guessing the worst that could happen is it gets dirty.

Not sure of the type of reactor but in general most will cut the filter flow down some. How much depends on the design of the reactor. How many sharp bends and what size the fittings are important. If the tubing is 5/8 and a 5/8 fitting is used, the inside of that fitting is usually quite a bit smaller diameter due to the wall thickness. This cuts flow.
