ViaAqua Acro-Cal Calcium Reactor Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

If you own a massive collection of corals, or if you simply take care of reef life, then the ViaAqua Acro-Cal Calcium Reactor from Pet Store is the perfect device for you. It is quite the versatile tool, performing powerfully as a water pump, a filtration device, and most important of all, a provider of essential nutrients. You will be surprised at how a premium-grade machine like this could come at a very affordable price. Nevertheless, the manufacturer is known for presenting its clients with a perfect offer that fits well within the budget.

This machine is equipped with several pipes and cylinders, allowing you to install this however you like, whether suspended from a cable, or just placed outside at a distance from the aquarium. As a pump, it produces foams that are essential for the provision of nutrients, as well as the cleansing of the water. It is even equipped with a counter to let you know the exact quantity of micro-bubbles that it produces.

Another great thing about this machine is that it converts carbon dioxide into calcium. This is one reason why it comes with a pump: for the production of air, which will be later turned into an element that is crucial to the strength of the shells of the corals.

With the ViaAqua Acro-Cal Calcium Reactor, you are guaranteed a sanitary aquarium, as well as healthier and more beautiful corals.

Acro-cal calcium reactor offers a simple and convenient solution for maintaining calcium and alkalinity in your reef tank. After the initial setup, the calcium reactor requires minimal maintenance. A calcium reactor is almost a necessity for tanks heavily stocked with stony coral where calcium and alkalinity demands are high and will promote coral line algae growth. Calcium reactors provide a steady supply of calcium by using CO2 to dissolve media in the reactor and, thus, releasing calcium into your water. The effluent released also acts as a buffer to stabilize kh.

Good for 2nd column Product Review by ANTHONY SCHOLTES (Posted on 12/2/08)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I didn't want to pay the $150 plus for a second column for my Korallin 1502, so I got this little gem. I was expecting it to be so-so, but it has worked out well. The control valves on the top are my only complaint. I just decided to use JG fittings instead. I would recommend as a second column addition, as I haven't tested it independently on another system.

Great!

Comments: Not a bad calcium reactor for the price. It is rated right but I would not put it on a larger system and expect it to keep up. I am cosidering getting another and using it for a sulfur denitrator. Price is right for a small reactor.

Great!

Comments: Pros: well made product; easy screw-on cap; fairly informative manual; works as advertised, definitely for no more than what it's rated; fairly inexpensive

Cons: needs separate pump to feed water into reactor; effluent maxed out at 14-16 dKH; any more than 20 bubbles/min. causes stream of CO2 at outlet;

Comments: Nice Simple reactor. The only thing is the top has a slight leak. Not the best gasket on there. Had to seal it with some silicone. Got it working ok. We will see what happens...Not throwing the box away yet! lol
