Reef Tank Reactors
I am in the process of planning out my sump and how I am going to arrange all of the equipment in my stand. I did some reading on reactors, and it sounds like I will need 2 reactors for a reef tank with soft corals and a few LPS. One reactor would be used to remove phosphate (phosban reactor) and another would be a Carbon reactor. I will also use kalkwasser, but I am going to use the drip method (mix a solution and drip it into my sump). Am I missing anything?
My other concern is about the pumps needed to run the reactors. Has anyone ever run two reactors off of one pump. I figured the fewer pumps in my sump the better, but if one pump is needed for each reactor that is not a problem.
