Manny's DIY Calcuim Reactor

I stopped by Manny's today to check out his Calcuim Reactor. I have to say the workmanship was excellent. He also completed a protein Skimmer. I was very impressed with the items. The calcuim reactor footprint is 8 X 12 X 21 (width, length, height). This is a good size to fit under my 90 gallon stand. The tube size is 5" diameter.







Protein Skimmer:

5 inch diameter tube

It should support up to 300 gallons when compared to other units. He is able to make it smaller or larger depending on your needs.
