    Hi All

    I need some advise. I want to get a calcium reactor for my 2000litr tank.

    Any advice welcome. I dont want to make any mistakes and I want it to be perfect.

    At the momnet I am looking at the Aqua exel c3 or the Deltec pd601.

    Let me know.

    Deltecs are nice but spares are a pain in the butt. If things go wrong be prepared to buy another CARX or import the spares yourself. The reef Octopus range are decent and spares are readily available. I'm not sure about the Aqua Excel.

    Aqua Medic are very good. Not sure about spares. Contact Idol marine they should be able to advise you better.

    Hey Bushman. The ReefOctopus Carx with the add on chamber should be sufficient for your 2000l system, and as your Ca and Alk demands increase, just add on another chamber to hold more media :)
