    New Calcium reactor VERY impressed!

    I finally got around to hooking up my new calcium reactor, I finally went out and spent the money on a high end model, and Iím incredibly impressed, this is my 3rd CA reactor and it is BY far the easiest to setup and maintain, absolutely no leaks and just an all around great reactor, I would highly recommend this brand to anyone.

    It is a Mini- cal Calcium reactor made by Marine Technical Concepts, the eheim pump that runs it is flawless, and doesn't make a sound!

    Here it is after i played around with it for a bit and made sure it didn't leak, just before i set it up

    I have a ridiculous amount of equipment crowded outside my tank; I had to build a little stand to keep it up off the ground so I could set it up.






    Here it is all closed in behind my bookshelf; I can still easily make adjustments to it because all the valves are easily accessible



    And here is where my Calcium bottle is at, it wouldn't fit behind the bookshelf, and here i can keep a good eye on it anyway.
