Looking for good calcium reactor?

In the market of buying a calcium reactor I was looking at this http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=KL1502 right now and the geo 618. Currently i'm getting into acro's,monti's(stoney's) and i think it is time to buy one of these. Any suggestion would help. Wanting to buy soon thanks......

I had the Korallin C1502 and just upgraded to the GEO 624, which I think would be perfect for your tank.

geo all the way

My GEO is the best calcium reactor I have ever owned, My params are right on, and I do not have to keep tinkering with it. I also love the bubble counter, easy to adjust, it is just a top notch product

ok i've decided to get the geo618 for now. I guess from what i'm reading i'll require a ph controller and a orp controller (would like to run ozone). I'm wanting to buy a good ph controller any suggestions?. So that said i guess i'll also need a pump water to the reactor? Not to sure or i could also use the over flow to get water to the reactor not to sure..... Any help would be great before i purchase this reactor. For what i'll need besides the reactor. I have a co2 bottle and gauge and solenoid.

Thanks for input....

I was using a MJ as well. I liked the idea of a T from my return pump with a John-Guest valve that would allow me more control on my affluent. I am a control freak : :

Thanks for all the input. Having room to place the reactor is not an issue (lots of room). I was loooking for a good quality reactor to fit my tank around 400 - 450 in price.if the deltec wasn't so pricy i would go with that but lots of peeps like the geo reactor from what i've read.

Thanks

I second the pro cal. Best piece of equipment I ever bought. Plug and play.
