Dose for the first 6 months till corals start to grow and suck up between 40 and 60mls a day. Then switch to a calcium reactor. You have time. It is not complicated at all. Initial cost will be high but it’s cheaper in the long run

I'm still trying to find room for a calcium reactor. My tank consumes over 350ml of each a day. Its being a pain in the arse mixing up a few gallons of brs 2 part every month.

I agree. no need calcium reactor yet. save your money now and look into calcium reactor next year. your 750xxl with small frags. you wont even need to do for 2-3months. PM me if you need help dialing it in.

100% Calcium reactor. I still have my doser hooked up when my 400 was packed at times needed a little boost of ALK but minimal to the above comments of 300ml a day comments. Especially now with having the trident hooked up and dialed in - when I need a touch of ALK I can monitor and add as needed a slow drip. I almost never have to add any cal. You are better holding off and getting a better system that is a little over rated for your system than under. It is always easier to dial it back than not having enough. Also spend the extra on the regulator. That is in my opinion the most important part and where you do not want the failure. Carbon Doser all the way. I have one on each system it is all I will run.
