I'm looking for a critique of my dry fitted DIY Rex Reactor/Heater/PH Probe/Temp Probe. The unit is about 24 inches tall and will be powered by an Ehiem 2213 at about 116gph (minus headloss) for a 5.5 gallon Mini M. It's a little taller because of the lower gph. The PH probe will control the CO2 via an AquaController (leftover from my reefing days) and is before the reactor for more accurate results. The temp probe will also control the heater via the AquaController. The pipe is 2 inches in diameter and the fittings are all Heyco Cordgrips.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?

1 Water In
2 CO2 Build-Up Release Valve
3 CO2 In
4 PH Probe
5 Water Out
6 75 Watt Ebo Jaber Heater
7 Temp Probe

Ahh. I see you didn't have it glued yet! Excellent.

I am concerned with the 2213 having enough "umph" to get that flowing nice. I remember I had mine with a small reactor and it was -ok-. Nothing spectacular, but it did the job.

Also, now that I am looking at the temp probe wye fitting, I would turn it around the other way so you don't get an obstructed pocket.
