    looks very nice! Is that a mirror around the rim or is it just that glossy that it reflects the tank? It threw me off at first, i thought u layered your sand or something.

    I don't know, I realy don't have the cash for a new one, but I am looking into possible DIY. Maybe I could model it off of yours?

    What do you think about a doseing pump? I asked the guy in that thread what he was doing by way of Calcium addition and he told me he was dosing a 2part liquid (like I am) and told me that he didn't care much for Calcium Reators.

    Travis,

    You could easily make one of these, DIY. I can't get over how expensive these pieces of equipment are, seeing how simple in design and construction they are. You just need the materials and the tools, which you probably already have, and you could easily make these things. You could even save a bit of cash if you use CLEAR PVC for the reactor and PVC sheet for the bases, as opposed to cell-cast acrylic ... the PVC is more durable anyway...if you should ever drop it, it'll probably bounce rather than crack and shatter like acrylic.
