Hi, After changing filter and glass wear setup the Nano doesn't appear to be working, where is best to have this situated? Also how often do people clean there's and do you use the cleaner solution from Twinstar?

The reactors vary on how long they last, much is dependant on how hard your water is, I have very hard water and the reactor in my 500L needs descaling in Citric acid weekly, however the one in my 50l rarely gets done. Eventually they pack in all together, mine in 500l tank last 3-6 months.

Heres a fortnights worth of scale from my 500L

Teaspoon of citric acid and boiling water soon makes it as good as new

I get replacement reactors for ebay Chihiros mesh replacement work well with them, I normally buy about four at a time to get best price per unit.

With soft water they last much longer.

Edit - if the plug in connector gets wet it sometimes needs a good airing to dry off - mine do end up in tank water sometimes :oops:

Thanks for the advice on cleaning. Where is best to position the Nano in the tank?

I place mine so the rising mist hits the outflow of the filter and skimmer in one tank and in other I have it so the mist gets sucked into the filter inlet
