Coralife Calcium Reactor - up to 500 gallons Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

Maintain the high quality of your reef aquarium water by continuously monitoring and checking the pH, calcium and CO2 levels in your tank. These tasks are now simple with the use of the Coralife Calcium Reactor from Pet Store. The reactor is made of premium grade acrylic constructed to be compact in form to provide strong and long lasting service. It has an easy to twist cover for the calcium reactor chamber. This calcium reactor chamber is equipped with an inlet fitting for pH sensor, probe or monitor. It also comes with a check valve and a clear bubble counter to monitor the level of CO2. The reactor has a coarse filter pad that traps the unwanted elements in the water. It has an intake media strainer to remove these elements from the water. These filtering tasks are facilitated by a self-priming pump that draws water to these agents. Input tubes measuring 3 feet are provided to supply water. The Coralife Calcium Reactor has a strainer on its end to further filter the water directed to the reactor chamber. The supply of water can also be controlled using a control valve. Finally, it is equipped with an indicator chamber that tells you that the water flow is crystal clear. This reactor works effectively in tanks carrying up to 500 gallons of water.

Feature(s):
  • Easy-Twist CA+ Reactor Chamber Cover (3" dia.) with pH Probe/Sensor Inlet Fitting
  • Integrated Clear CO2 Bubble Counter and CO2 Check Valve
  • Reactor Intake Media Strainer

Not worth the money

Comments: The good thing about this calcium reactor is that it is cheap. Even so, it isn't worth the money. As another reviewer stated, bubbles build up in the pump line (I found it happened at least once a week) preventing eluent from being pumped into the tank. Construction is flimsy, and the foam filter pad would get clogged preventing the pump from drawing sufficient water. I spent more time maintaining this than if I had dosed my tank with calcium manually.

Great but after modification

Comments: This reactor is a good cheap base if you willing to modify it(this will void the warranty). Silicon around the pump and PTFE tape on all the screw threads, ussed eggcrate to lift the sponge up above the outlet, added a second chamber with crushed coral to further remove CO2, replaced the inlet hose screw with a needle valve for finer flow control and added a ball valve to the top for venting gas buildup occasionally.

Experience Level: Expert


Comments: Pros: inexpensive, compact, easy to fill, pH probe-ready, low-power consumption Cons: Getting the unit running (getting air out of pump inlet line) is time-consuming and tedious. A bubble builds up in the top of the unit every couple of weeks which requires the inlet/outlet tubes be pinched off so the top can be unscrewed and water can be poured in. The pump attaches bayonet-style, and it is very flimsy and cracks easily. The "auto-fill" bubble counter goes dry over time and there is no easy way to refill it.

Reviewers Rating Great


4.0 5


Comments: I could not even get any effluent out of this thing until I did two mods. 1-It needs a feed pump. An aqualifter seems just fine.2-You need to use a piece of 3/4" PVC and egg crate to raise up the foam
