Excellent! How deep is your tank and do the lights punch all the way down to the sandbed? I'm hoping there will be enough spread to cover a 24 X 24 area...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

its a 22 inch tank. to the top of the sand bed is about 20 inches and it doesn't appear to have any problem getting light down there.

Good deal! Thanks. My tank will be 24 inches deep so it should do the job.

People like the brs reactors, I have two i still wanna get but just havent yet. lol I did read that the dual one can get clogged more easily than running two singles. Alot depends on the pump you use though i think. I think brs used to recommend the mag 3 for it.

Not sure of your stocking, I havent read back to see what you have. But a small wrasse shouldnt be too bad off the top of my head.

Yeah that's what I have been reading. I just don't know if I can fit two pumps in my sump. That's why I was thinking of getting the dual.

What do you think I should do? Get the dual or just one single? Or I can try to make room for 2 singles and hope everything fits lol

You can hang or mount one of the reactors a little bit away from the sump if you need to. That might help. Or you can take a chance on the double. If you run a mag that might be able to keep both going.

Yeah I can fit the reactors themselves. I'm just worried about fitting two pumps in the sump to run them.

I get ya. I see your point. I barely have room for the one MJ I have in my sump. lol The only thing I can think of is use the double and if it clogs upgrade the pump to a mag drive. If you are buying the mj that they recommend and not using your own that you have already I would just get the mag to start out with. The reactor comes with a ball valve to adjust the flow so you can dial it in and change it if the media clogs.

Hmm I'll have to look into prices. I was planning to use the mj they recommend. Do you happen to know the dimensions of the mj? I'm wondering if it could go under the stand my skimmer is on lol
