    @melissadelport, haven't seen one in ages, tricky piece of equipment, could release to much Hydrogen Sulphide, if not opretaed carfully, and wipe your system out, nada!

    Many ways to skin the proverbial nitrate cat. Most cost effective product on the market at the moment would be Orca biocubes, works like a bomb and also helps reduction of phosphate. There is a thread on here somewhere.... Alternatively, consider a remote deep sand bed, but considering the cost of oolitic aragonit, it might be cost prohibitive for your size system.

    The reason nitrate reactors are so scarce is because they work so well when set up correctly. They get snapped up so quickly it is not funny. When we break down systems for resale that is the first bit of kit that is sold.

    Will pass on the request to @ADVdiver, I think there is a second kalk stirrer or two available.
