    Julian Sprung and Two Little Fishies have been busy cranking out new products for 2009. Some of them are obvious additions, such as the Phosban 550 reactor while others are fresh and new to the TLF line.

    The Phosban Reactor 150™ has become a staple amongst most aquarists who keep SPS corals. So much so that you often see Phosban used interchangeably with the term GFO or Granular Ferric Oxide. To meet the demand of larger tanks and reduce the number of Phosban Reactors needed, TLF has created the Phosban 550 reactor for aquariums up to 600 gallons. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Taking a spin on the Phosban Reactor’s upflow design, TLF has created the brand new KW Reactor™ for kalkwasser top off.  By pushing the water through the kalkwasser (Calcium Hydroxide) at the bottom of the reactor what emerges at the top and leaves the unit is a saturated limewater solution to help meet your coral’s needs. A simple and effective design. Two sizes are available, Model 100 for aquariums up to 100 gallons and Model 300 for aquariums up to 300 gallons.

     

     

     

     

     

    While most advanced hobbyists opt for Refractometers, the swing arm Hydrometer may make a come back thanks to Julian’s new patent-pending design. This is “the only swing-arm box style hydrometer than can be calibrated by the user to assure an accurate reading.” Each AccuraSea™ Hydrometer includes an AccuraSea™ Seawater Reference solution. These reference solutions will also be available individually for long term calibration. In addition to the reference solution AccuraSea™ Natural Saltwater direct from the ocean is available in 2.3g or 4.6g containers for waterchanges.

     

     

     

    These are some simple, but staple items that will likely become popular among advanced and novice aquarists. For more info on these products as well as other items such as their new ReVive™ Coral Cleaner, ReBorn™ Calcium Reactor Media and Outsanding Selection™ Packaged Live Sand, be sure check out the full catalog brochure: TLF Catalog (PDF)

      The kalkwasser mixer is just what I have been looking for to use on my 38g nano. I was going to DIY one, but seems better to wait now than end up with one of my ugly creations.
