I am planning on getting a Rena xp2 for my tank. My current CO2/filter system is being difficult, and I would like to plumb in a decent reactor. Anyone have an External reactor they really like?

Hi I have the Reaktor 1000 from AquaMedic. It looks decent and holds water, mounts nicely. I cant tell you how good it works because I am still working on setting it up now.
Filter and heater $80
65 gallon aquarium $280
Gazing at your Apistogramma for hours on end.....
PRICELESS!!!

I still am not sure if I want to do a DIY right now.

If they were in stock at Dr Fosters, I would probably have one by now!

FF - Let me know how you like your 1000 once you get it setup! Thanks!
