  • Zeo Reactor

    Man oh man this is just not my day. I went to change the zeo media in my reactor and the whole thing broke. I am supposed to be getting a new one.........soon I hope. In the mean time can I use an Eheim 2213 canister filter as a reactor or should I just go to using it in a media bag passively in my sump?
    I don't think I am ever going to get the zeo thing working properly.

    Sure you will, Ruth, just another test of our patience :icon_roll I'd recommend using the Eheim canister as your zeo-reactor for now, shaking it up & down about 10 x's/day. Just be sure the reactor is "on" when cleaning the stones. Bob

      Thanks Bob I will try and use that. Actually I have one more idea to try and fix the reactor at least temporarily until I get a new one. I am just getting so discouraged. Between not being able to get supplies and equipment - I've had a reactor ordered since last June and still don't have it -to getting broken equipment - my BK no less - and then to top it off my corals look horrible. I am pretty sure that this is because I had a problem with heat that I did not notice right away and when I did the tank was up to around 88-89 degrees. My SPS have all turned brown or are STNing - the only thing in the tank that looks good are my 2 anemones and my fish. I have the heat issue dealt fixed temporarily with a fan until I can get a chiller up and running. I don't know why I didn't think of it - I guess because it is winter and goldang cold outside and this is my first acrylic tank which I now know hold heat a lot more than a glass tank.
      Whew - vent over - I'm OK now!
