    Anybody have any experience with chaetomorpha reactors similar to the one pictured? This is a Cleartides reactor made in the UK. Do they work and if so how well, pros and cons along with any other information you may have. Thanks.

    Specification.
    A360/200 (200gals/ 880l).

    For removal of phosphate and nitrate from Marine and Freshwater systems.

    This algae reactor is a purpose built device for the successful culture of chaetomorpha to remove phosphate and nitrate from your aquatic system.

    The reactor uses a central positioned led light that provides efficient light for the algae to grow.

    The lighting is provided by a 12v LED contained in a quartz sleeve. An aluminum heat sink is used up top to tranfer heat away from the reactor chamber.

    The reactor also includes PVC Unions fitted to both inlet and outlets... for ease of maintenance.

    For the USA, a plug adapter will be supplied to match.


    These reactors are designed as a free standing unit (pressurised). They can be placed in cabinet.. in or out of the sump.. or whatever suits your setup.

    Pump Requirement: 1000lph - 1500lph

    Algae Capacity: 7 litre

    Dimensions (mm):
    Height: 700

    Footprint: 165

    Column Dia: 150

    Hosetail Dia: 20

    looks like a straight-up copy of the A.R.I.D. unit. I hear mixed reviews, most are good, the biggest complaints I've heard is the price and the customer support (from ARID that is)
     
  3. Looked at it (something similar) last year but could not find anyone local to me using it I could use as a reference.

    Expensive.
