Aquaforest and calcium reactor?

Can the AF system be used with a calcium reactor? Would you just use everything but the calcium?

Yes you can use Aquaforest with a calcium reactor. Youll want to use components A, B, C with the calcium reactor.

You wont use the components 1,2,3 unless you have a very large demand for calcium, Alkalinity and magnesium.

thanks,

So on tank option 4, all sps aquarium. Would I use anything from step 3 if I was to individually use products? Would I use any of the micro and macro nutrients?

Yes you would basically use everything except for the components 1,2,3. Your using a calcium reactor so this replaces your calcium and alkalinity requirements. You may need to use the magnesium unless you use a product for your calcium reactor that helps with magnesium levels.

Micro nutrients are best determined by doing an ICP-OES test and dose those only according to need.

So probiotic salt, np pro, pro bio s, phosphate minus, Zeo mix with caution, Amino mix, vitality, build, energy. Component A, B, C

Id also recommend Life Bio Fil.

Zeo Mix is very effective medium that's why we recommend to start with 1/2 dose and observe corals.
