Reactors & Other Devices

Two Little Fishies Phosban Reactor

Specifically designed to contain phosphate removal mediasor any other granular media such as activated carbon, nitrate sponge, etc.

Made to be mounted anywhere on the aquarium, the fluidized design of the reactor will increase the efficiency of the media.

Maximum recommended flow rate of 80 to 90 gph. (Maxi-Jet 400 works great!)

Each reactor comes with a ball valve for flow adjustment and hose clamps.

Footprint: 17"x4.5"
Capacity: Up to 150 Gallons
Max Flow Rate: 80 - 90 gph

Our Phosban package comes complete and ready to operate. Package includes:

  • 1 Phosban 150 Reactor
  • 1 Maxi-Jet 400 Pump
  • 1 Rowa-Phos 250ml
  • 3 Feet 1/2 Tubing

Korallin Calcium Reactor Kit

Korallin 1502 Calcium Reactor Package 1 - includes C-1502 Calcium Reactor, Eheim 1048 Pump, Deluxe Regulator and CaribSea 8 lbs Reactor Media

The already best-selling Kalkreaktor (Calcium Reactor) in Germany has become even better. It completely replaces Kalkwasser, 1 or 2-part Calcium / Buffer powder & liquid dosing. The new and improved Korallin kalkreaktor allows a simple, elegant and high efficiency production of calcium hydrogen carbonate including the necessary balanced carbonic acid. Sit back and watch your aquarium`s pH and dKH being kept at optimum levels. Together with our reliable CO2 System, this is the most maintenance-free Kalkreaktor setup in the world.

Ca2+ + 2HCO3 = Ca(HCO3)2 = CaCO3 + H2CO3 Calcium + Hydrogen Carbonate =
Calcium Hydrogen Carbonate = Calcium Carbonate + Carbonic Acid

A Kalkreaktor setup (ie: one with CO2 System and CaCO3 media) is expensive only at the beginning. You save money in the long term because a 5-pound CO2 refill ($12) lasts you 1.5 years on our Kalkreaktor (and only ours) while a 7-kg CaCO3 media ($42 and good enough for 2 refills) lasts you up to 1 year! And no more tedious daily Calcium dosing. A pH Controller is not required for our Kalkreaktor because there is no chance for the excessive CO2 to escape into your system like ALL other brands on the market. A pH Monitor is a nice equipment to have for fast pH measuring. Though pH Test Kit and pH Pen-monitor can still be used for this purpose.

The internal recirculation flow rate of the C-1502 is around 80 g/h. Since that this is a pressurized Kalkreaktor, the dissolution of the media by the carbonized water is enhanced. The effluent rate is only about 0.25 g/h at 40 drops / min. Thus explaining the efficient CO2 & media use. CO2 is being introduced into the Eheim powerhead direct - this is the most efficient Aspirating-Venturi method.

CO2 Equipment

CO2 systems have found many uses in the aquarium world. They are used on planted aquariums to grow plants faster, and in marine systems to dissolve calcearous media.

The CO2 system is composed of the cylinder, regulator (drops pressure from tank), needle valve (fine adjustment of gas flow) and solenoid (safety/control valve).

In most cases you can expect your CO2 supply to last up to around 6 months.

Milwaukee Controllers & Testers

Milwaukee Instruments is one of the largest equipment suppliers to the aquaculture and mariculture industries. These low cost controllers and monitors cover pH, ORP, and TDS and are a great way to automate aspects of your aquarium without breaking the bank!

Try one of their innovative units such as the Lux meter or hand held pH monitor.

Automatic Top-Off Devices

The almost daily chore of replacing evaporated water in to our aquariums is something that the seasoned aquarist knows all to well. After years of manual labor an aquarist eventually says to himself "no more!".

Auto Top Off can mean many different things but generally involves an electronic controller that actively measures the desired water level and adds water when needed. Enjoy a more stable salinity level all while avoiding manual labor.
