15-Question. What is the replacement schedule for your reactor media in my reactor?
Answer: The media will have to be replaced on a regular basis. This will be dependent on how heavily the Nature's Ocean® Premium Aragonite Reactor Media is being consumed. It is a good practice to check every three months at the start, and as time goes on you will find a more accurate time line in which to renew the media. In the interim, it is advised to check your reactor chamber monthly. When you change to new media, you should always check the circulation pump, and clean if necessary.

16-Question. If I have low calcium will using Aragonite Reactor Media raise my levels?
Answer: The quick answer is yes and no, and in fact you can make your problems worse if you're not careful. Like any reef supplementation program, you must move slowly as the calcium reactor is brought online in your reef system. The effluent (the product that comes out of the reactor) can have a very low pH and this can in turn shift the pH of your tank to more acidic levels. A well tuned calcium reactor can easily bring low calcium levels up to a more useful level, but it's best to have things in the right range before you start adding effluent from the reactor.
