Stable parameters are the key to a successful Reefscape. Calcium, being utilized by a myriad variety of oceanic life forms including corals and crustaceans, is amongst the most important of these parameters. As the fifth most abundant ion found in natural saltwater, it is absolutely critical that Calcium is kept as a constant. One of the greatest equipments we have at our disposal to maintain this parameter is the Calcium Reactor. By dissolving Aragonite-based mediums down to their basic elements, Calcium Reactors allow for a continuous influx of calcium into the system. Vertexâ„¢ RX-Series Calcium Reactors now bring this potent tool home to you with all the features and qualities you need at values you can easily afford.
