My reactor has been running for a week now since I fixed the clog. Just looked at it just now and has a very slow stream of water coming out. Any ideas why its doing this often?

well i swapped out my cylinder this morning, removing the mix of GFO & Carbon and ive decided just to use GFO in the reactor. I figure, itll be changed out less frequently and hopefully wont clog up bc now its tumbling pretty good.

Ill head out today and get some filter socks or something so i can put the Carbon in there and just drop it in my sump. No need to let my 3/4 container of Carbon go to waste lol

Panty hose are a great alternative to filter socks.

This is true. I'll see what my LFS has as far as socks and go from there I guess

Got some filter socks. 2 questions. How much should I put into the sock? And is there a specific place to put it in the sump?

Oh n I just ordered an 8oz bottle of Coral rX to dip frags in, a fragging tool kit and a drip acclimator with a pump and ball valve (airlines with knots in it have been annoying me lately lol) from BRS.
