You think?, this works just fine, same concept, probe is out of the tank. I know for a fact the probe does not need to be in the main tank to maintain consistent CO2 saturation. http://www.cichliddomain.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3
Do you know of any attempts to put the probe in a reactor that failed? I do not understand what the problem would be. If it takes setting the thermostat in the pilot light at 100 degrees (and I think you are wrong with this analogy, you have not even seen a schematic or the setup of what I plan to do) to keep the house at 72, so be it. I will be drilling the tank next weekend and installing 4 bulkheads with 2 cannister filters. One will have this reactor and one will have an external heater. I do not want anything in the tank like my 110 gallon including the PH probe. If it works, and I see no reason why it won't, I will be installing bulkheads on all my show tanks to get the unsightly equipment out of them. I will post pics of the setup......DC
