Q&A Letter Spotlight

Robert Barcroft writes to Bob about:
Algae Control

Dear Bob, I am thankful and appreciative of all the information you have on your website and for all the good advice you have given me over the years through your column in FAMA. I have now had a plenum system for over seven years and for the most part have had good results. But am now starting to have a hair algae problem that does not want to go away. I changed to R/O & D/I water with little effect, and added phosphate removers with the same result. Someone then suggested there is an accumulation of nutrients in the bed and I should break down the aquarium and clean all the substrate, more.

Product Review of Mini-cal Calcium Reactor

Manufactured by Marine Technical Concepts

Mini-Cal Calcium Reactor: (Written in 2003) As for calcium reactors in general, if you maintain a reef aquarium and don't have a calcium reactor you're missing out on an easy way to maintain a very stable environment. When a reactor is used it ends having to prepare and add Kalkwasser and/or dosing other type calcium and buffer additives. Imagine not adding either or most other additives. Many of those who still use these additives don't realize they are fighting the calcium and buffer war or simply adding unneeded constituents to the bulk water. They may add calcium one day and buffer more.
