    Once a week but mainly to make sure that the calcium reactor is working the way it should be :D

    The LFS, if you're lucky to be close enough, should have all the necessary testing equipment for you! & for free to boot! We all have a salinity checker however and that's the most important....

    Hey Amcarring, I dont want to sound like a A-hole, but whats the point of spending over $600.00 in a Ca Reactor if you have to test it to make sure its working properly? If you test your water once a week, it would be the same thing(without the ca reactor). Luna
