Calcium reactors are only for tanks with large amounts of Sps and Lps corals. I have a phosphate reactor. Long story short I think all tanks should have a phosphate reactor. Why not have something that will take out phosphates and lower nitrates?

Yeah the only dif is the media you put in. For phosphates you can run gfo for nitrates and phosphates something like npx bioplastics. Remember when running reactors you need a protein skimmer
