Hello good people of tpt.net!
I've been lurking around for couple of months to get any kind of experience that you generously share before I set up my amateur tank. Now I need your help once again to make my SERA reactor work properly.
My tank is 300 lt. (80 gallons approx.) while the net water volume is around 55 gallons.
Here is the brief info of my system;
Canister Filter: Eheim Professional 4+ 350T (Max. output 1050 lt/h)
Reactor: Sera Flore Co2 Active Reactor 500 (Requires min. 500 lt/h)
UV: JBL Procristal UV-C 18w
Co2: JBL Pressured tube w/ JBL PH Controller
Now here is my problem;
Since I have had some hair algeas in my tank for 4-5 weeks, I was suspecting that Co2 doesn't dissolve efficiently so I have upgraded my ceramic diffuser to SERA reactor. I have connected my canister filter output to the reactor then connected the reactor output to the UV filter. When I turned the filter on, the mills (there are 2 mills in the reactor) were not rotating. I have suspected the output flow rate of the canister filter although it is perfectly sufficient to make it run according to the guides. I have disconnected the UV filter from the system in order to reduce the output pressure, hoping the reactor will work w/o it. Still, it doesn't rotate as it supposed to do.
Could you guys please give me your suggestions to fix this problem?
All helps are really appreciated since I've been working on this for weeks.
