    this thing sucks there is no image button :)
    Notes:
    I have TWO (it's important that it's noted TWO) JNS Zeo reactors. I am getting my new reactor on Wednesday and I want to get rid of these two.


    Details:

    1. Seven months old
    2. Pumps are still super silent
    3. It takes around 750ml of media in each of the reactors.
    4. Pump max flow - 750l/h
    5. Pump type SICCE

    Pic again @viper357 (How do you put pics in the for sale section.....) [​IMG]

    This is one of them but they exactly the same.
    Price R950 each. They go for new R1850.

    Notes:
    1.The plugs are taken off (had to plug them into my Profilux) - Chatted to @Submariner he is tolerant of this so don't panic :)

    2. One of the screws on one of the reactor snapped, again spoke to @Submariner and I can get a replacement from him it's just one of the screws...

    It has been mentioned before that depending on your browser, the pic will not upload with the first post. It works on the second post.

    Hey I don't have any media but its cheap the media. One bag is around R170 bucks (you have to check with @Submariner - I don't pay attention to prices). One bag is 1000ml and this reactor takes 750ml.

    The media type is ZeoVit maybe just Bing it and read up about it.

    @PICASSO

    zeo media needs a little more attention than pellets as in it needs to have the reactor it is in plunged approx 2 - 3 times daily.

    pellets are a little more user friendly but also come with their pro's and cons..

    personally after trying NP pellets i am keen on giving zeo a go.. as the limited amounts i have used their products i have seen positive results...

    please research before committing to a carbon dose system..

    apologies for the thread derail @mytank

    @Leslie hemple - no issues its the right advise. Zeo can be a fantastic system to run, the colors it brings out in the corals is second to NONE. What I will say is you do need to know your stuff :)

    For all the guys asking about this reactor as a pellet reactor. I asked @Submariner and the advise is not to use this as a pellet reactor.

    It is a great Zeo reactor, so those that want to test their stuff at Zeo and don't want to fork out R1850 for a new reactor this one is seven months old and half the price.

    Bump bump

    so basically, does a zeo reactor with the media for R189 per bag a source of feeding the corals or does it remove nitrates, ammonia etc..

    this would depend on your nutrient levels, and capacity of your skimmer... i am using zeo coral snow (one of the zeo additives) and its made my water crystal..


    if you have a phos or nitrate level in abundance your water may remain murky with pellets untill the phos and nitrate levels decrease... im not sure if the case will be simular with the zeo system.

    1 bag of media services 400lt the stones need to partially be changed out every 6 - (but in some cases as much as 8) weeks.

    you always leave some stone behind to keep the bacteria cultures active and ready to take on the new media which has been added.

    it aims the system at becoming low nutrient and then you feed the corals with super concentrated (zeo) additives..

    its seems very expensive to outlay at first but the additives go very far..

    i am not yet running zeo but i am planning to dabble with it for basic water management as my tanks focus is LPS and softies, so i do not want to reduce my nutrients 100% but merley controll algae growth etc

    Even though I might be putting myself out of a sale, I don't suggest you purchase these reactors until you are 100% familiar with the ZeoVit method and system.

    Even though it can't give you a 100% ultra low nutrient system there are things you need to consider and know. Also the calculation of flow rates in your reactor etc is key to a healthy Zeo system.

    404 Not Found is one site plus there are many manuals etc you can read. It is a successful ULNS method provided you know how to run it. Many coral tanks with fantastic colors are Zeo systems.
