    Awrite crew.
    I got myself a second hand AM KR1000 Carx (upgrading from the Reefoctopus Carx as it cannot meet my Bio load). I did however notice that the outlet (on the inside of the reactor) appears to be very shallow (if you get what I mean).
    I've been thinking, would'nt this cause airblockages to the outlet?Therefore the reactor will require to be bleeded more often.
    I was thinking about modifying it by extending the oulet deeper into the reactor, like 2cm or so. What would you guys suggest?
    Oh yes. And i currently have the reactor with only 50% media in it +-4kg's need to get more.Can i run the reactor this way?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Correct. You should not be getting an airbubble at the top. If you are then cut the co2 supply. Not sure about the mod but it makes sense.
