Macroalgae reactors are built with the sole purpose of growing chaetomorpha algae. While it’s possible to grow small amounts of chaetomorpha in a refugium, a dedicated macroalgae reactor goes beyond the humble refugium to create a supercharged macroalgae growing machine.
Algaes thrive on phosphates and nitrates which are dissolved in the aquarium water. By harvesting and removing the macroalgae, excessive nutrients are removed from the aquarium water which helps maintain a natural biological balance.
When you’re ready to step up your nutrient export game, get yourself one of these chaetomorpha reactors and watch your aquarium thrive.
- Pax Bellum干旱Chaetomorpha过滤器
ThePax Bellum ARID filter是21世纪的制作过滤空间的方法，致力于密集Chaetomorpha.culture.
- Tunze Mar.Macroalgae Reactor
TheTunze Mar.reactor is equipped with two of EcoChic LED striplights using blue and red LEDs for maximum photosynthetic efficiency. The LED strips are attached to the outside of the reactor chamber so they wont get fouled with algae. The MAR reactor also features a new quick-disconnect lid with embedded magnets as well as thumbscrews. The TUNZE MAR comes in two sizes.
- Grotech Macroalgae饲养员
The MacroAlage Breeder works best with red algae family (e.g.Gracilaria curtissiae）或线藻（例如Chaetomorpha.linum).
- Atomic Greenie Grower
TheAtomic Greenie Groweris a product out of the UK an algae reactor designed to reduce Nitrates and organic waste in marine aquariums.
原子反应堆使用LED丝带约为20 diodes on it at 16W output. We couldn’t find much information about the color of the LED’s but looking at the illuminated picture, we can assume they’re in the standard 4:1 ratio of red (625-660nm) to blue (445-465nm) LEDs designed for plant growth.
- Skimz Macroalgae生物吸收反应器
The太平洋阳光反应器专业is a solidly built macroalgae reactor that comes in four sizes, a small, medium, large & jumbo XXL. The reactor is built with a sturdy white PVC body, clear acrylic keyhole flanged top, several inlets, and a vertical LED. Instead of using a heatsink to dissipate excess heat Pacific Sun says they are using an 85% efficient, low-power LED. So if only 15% of 20 watts of power provided to the LEDs.
