I'm using an AM reactor 1000 through the output side of a fluval 404 filter. The problem is the flow is too strong and I'm not getting the desired co2 absorption.Any ideas on how to restrict the flow to get better results? The reactor is mounted vertically on the back of the tank stand, towards the bottom part of the tank. What if I try to angle it or if I lower the reactor to be more level with the filter, would that help? Thanks for the ideas,
John

you can split the output tube into two. split it right before the reactor and bring it back to one after the reactor. put an adjustment valve on the bypass line. turn the valve off and you get full flow throught the reactor. if you turn the valve on slightly it will slow the flow through the reactor. hope this helps.
