    Hi Thalion, according to some of the threads i have read on many of the other boards these are very highly rated reactors, some even rate them no. 1. A friend of mine bought one a few years back and i can honestly say he has not had a moments hassle out of it.

    Thanks for the input but would feel a bit better if had more replys. A lot of money for a container that just holds media.

    To Soon

    I have now been using a carx for 3 days and it is the 1st time I have mannaged to get my calcium above 400, mg and ph are also up. Is it too soon to get false hope, I know they say thing will settle around a week, but thing are looking good.

    Don't worry about the yellow thing on the top, just put it in as I don't have a probe and don't think I will be needing one.
    My only problem is I am now looking for a CO2 reg that I can change the pressure down to 20psi as to get 8 bpm it very difficult.
    Look like my ph is up again this morning now it is 8.15 before the morning ph was only 8, will test the rest later, but I am shure they will be OK.

    Go to an industrial welding supplier, and ask for an adjustable Argon/CO2 regulator - they're massive, but very accurately adjustable, and not so expensive...

    Thanks
    I see you also don't use a PH probe.
    Is that your HiFi & TV next to your tank? No prob with the salt.

    Thanks Alan, did phone them, but they can't give me a answer. The guy said they could get a needle valve, but........
    I want to know price and avalibility and they are in JHB. Durban people say I must phone tomorrow. I just want a straight answer.

    I found their name on Deltec's web page, and thought they were the importers(Exotic that is)
