And for anyone interested in the reactor...here is a little about it...
Primed, ready for glue
Glued and assembled
Took literally 15 minutes to build. I had the pipe already and spend about $20 for the rest of the stuff. I used 2" pvc and the pipe is about 18". Barbs are 1/2" and instead of drilling a hole and inserting the CO2 line, I went ahead and used a threaded T piece and got an actual screw-in barb to install the CO2 line on. Feel free to ask any questions about the build. I'll post up how it works once I get all my CO2 equipment. The frustrating part is that my tank needs hydro tested and the only place near me that does it is backed up 3-4 weeks. I might stop in there on Wednesday and see if they have a small 5# loaner tank I can use while waiting for my 10# to be tested and filled. I'd love to get CO2 in my tank this week. Lights should be here this week as well.
