[Coral-List] Ocean Acidification

Dear Robson,

the simplest way I can think of is to install a marine aquarium calcium 
reactor in the closed system. However, do NOT fill the reactor with the 
calcium/aragonite media, keep it empty for obvious reasons. A calcium 
reactor can be used to dose the tank with CO2 and a digitally controlled 
solenoid valve used to set pH accordingly.

good luck, Sean

Dr. Sean Porter
