    I got a five stage rodi unit which I’m super excited about. My sea hare is doing some work in the tank. Now I am looking at some nutrient export ideas. I am debating between a fuge or a Chaeto reactor. Any thoughts about which one would be better? I would think the only difference would be the reactor would need more maintenance as far as extraction? Any thoughts??

    I've always had a fuge and it's never had a large effect on my NO3/PO4. While it seems like maintenance would be more with a reactor, if you actually do it right and keep your fuge clean I think it's more work. I have actually been lax in removing detritus that's deposited in the fuge that wouldn't be a problem with a reactor. I will be interested to see how it goes regardless of which choice you make. Keep us informed!

    I definitely will. I think I’m gonna buy the 2 little fishies reactor and throw some Chaeto in it and wrap the reactor with a led strip light. I’ve seen some videos on it. I’ll post the progression.
