Yes, this makes sense. Will bet you a chicken dinner it deploys fully in the frag tank. I have a number of soft octocorals the clowns host that seem to ignore them completely, the LPS corals are not among them, they close up if irritated. But the clowns seem to sense this and choose the octocorals.

Hmmm... Maybe I'll try to set-up a web-cam and record a day of action in the tank, and see what I capture - I'm sure reagardless it would be interesting.

I still want to invest in the Reactor and test anyway. It is absurd to invest so much and then not do all I can to keep it pristine.

The frogspawn wouldn't require much pecking before it reacts. Or even a quick clown hug. Over time they get kind of depressed (if a coral can get depressed...) and don't fully deploy. This is just one theory. I would always make checking water parameters the first course of action. Flow is also something they can be picky about. A little too much and they might try to stay compact, while it seems at low flow times they get big and send out sweepers.

Friday I will be purchasing this:

Dual BRS GFO and Carbon Reactor - English

Does anyone have any feedback or comments or concerns about this unit?

Also, more importantly, which type of Carbon and GFO should I be using? There are three types of Carbon that BRS sells, and two types of GFO!

Please help.

I ordered one of them a few days ago scheduled to arrive on Thursday. I ordered the ROX carbon and the regular GFO. I should've waited could have gotten on the group buy. I hope you got a break in price. I got the MJ1200 pump with it.

I accumulate a lot of reward points, so I didn't pay much.
