    What do you keep in your reactor to help the tank on a daily basis? I currently have phosphate sponge to get my phosphates down but once they are down (tomorrow) I am wondering g what I should put in there. GFO, carbon, something else?

    I want something I don't have to change every week but yet helps the tank.

    I currently do not run a reactor....may in the future, but that being said, you only run any of that stuff for a purpose. It all depends on your water test results. That will tell you if you need to add a reactor to help fix a problem.
