    I have a DIY external reactor, and I feel like it is not as efficient as it was when it was first made.

    I'm deciding to try the venturi internal reactor.

    I was wondering if anyone has any spare viewtainer and is willing to make me a venturi reactor with a new RIO powerhead.

    I have a 36x18x18" tank. so a small reactor would be nice.

    I am willing to pay for the parts/shipping and labour if it is resonable.

    The main reason is I don't have too much time at the moment and do not want to wait for the shipping of the viewtainer and rio powerheads cost around $40cdn...whereas some claim they can get them for $15US?

    Thanks, much appreciated.

    See folks, buy a case of Rio powerheads(run about 8-10$ ea) and make them and sell them for 25-30$ ea.

    hey Tom,

    is the venturi reactor in the gallery still the best version of the reactor so far? or was there any modification lately after finding out the CO2 mist?

    I was able to buy a used rio 180 powerhead for cheap.
    I'm gonna order some viewtainer next week (the 2x4)

    will the be enough for my 50G?

    thanks.

    To add more mist, raise the level of the venturi inlet up near the top of the collection tube.
