Well what are you trying to accomplish with another reactor? Bring phosphates down more? If that is the case, why not just switch to a high capacity GFO? BRS sells it, I run it in my reactor.

Sorry you lost your hippo tang Dan, any idea why? And will you get another? Kole tang/yellow eyed tangs and yellow tangs are great at eating hair algae. Just a thought mate.

Well use it up and switch over if you are still having an issue. It took me several months of running the gfo to see any results.

Thanks, and no idea. Came home n he was stuck to my power head so either he got stuck and just died or died and then got stuck. I wanted to get a kole tang but wanna wait til I have my other stock in bc they can be very territorial. I was thinking of maybe changing my stock list from a kole tang to just a yellow tang. Seems my LFS always has them and never have kole tangs.

PS. Oh and I might get another hippo tang. Just not right now lol
