thanks mike!! I have about 500ml in a LTF reactor, as per the ORP reading nothing special not adding any solutions or additive for that, i just started to monitor in when i got the DA RKL and the system seems to maintain that reading, when i do a water change it, i do nice it drop to low 400.

Awesome! A ORP reading of 400+ is quite the achievement without any external help.
