In this video I am going to take you through my weekly routine on how I clean my Pax Bellum ARID algae reactor and harvest the chaeto. I am then going to turn it over to Tristan Wilson, the owner of Pax Bellum, so he can demonstrate the proper way to swap out a light tube.
The new light tubes from Pax Bellum won’t craze and crack like the old ones. They will get scratched and lose toughness with age but shouldn’t crack or craze. Tristan expects a longer life cycle with the new versions but still recommends changing out the light tube after 10-12 months due to scratches.
ARID Algae Reactor Care – Step by Step Guide
If you would like some help with a new tank build, including help designing a custom aquarium, or help re-configuring your current setup then you can visit this page for more information. And if you are looking to add some equipment, I do sell GHL, Pax Bellum, Reef Octopus Calcium and Kalk Reactors and Royal Exclusiv products, including Dreamboxes, which is the equipment I use and recommend. I also sell Reef Brite metal halide and LED fixtures as well as Maxspect & IceCap Gyres.
As for additional insights and information, please explore my many other reef tank and SPS related articles as well as my YouTube channel. For an even deeper dive into reef tank care you can check out my Reef Keeping Master Class. This online course is an immersive and one of a kind educational tool designed to help reef aquarium hobbyists build and maintain a beautiful SPS reef tank. The course is a series of video presentations with some supplemental video from my YouTube channel. There are also quizzes to help students retain and understand the information presented in the course.
Need some frags…..I can help with that as well 🙂 Please visit my SPS Frag store to see what is available.
