When I get one it will be a GSA (Grey Seas Aquatics) They have a website but it is under construction so you can't see much about them. He also builds skimmers.

Life Reef is another good option...

How much calcium, in ppm, is your tank using each day that you think you need a ca reactor? They are really only needed in heavily stocked SPS tank with a high calcium demand. I just use the 2-Part solutions to maintain my ca/alk.
