Does anyone use or have used a sulphur reactor , are they suitable for use on a mixed reef tank ? What would the pros and cons to this kind of system be ?
Ive done a little reading and already know that they cause the pH level to drop and take about a month to set up properly .
Any other info or experience would be great

I have also done a bit of reading and it seems they are widely used in large aquariums and fisheries because of efficiency.

Aquamedic produce a reactor especially for sulphur which also has a buffer chamber. The water passes through the sulphur and hydrocarbonate in series so all sulphur treated water gets buffered immediately.
