Bought two of these By Charles on 6/13/13Charles would recommend this product to a friendBought two of these for my 75 gallon tank. One for GFO and one for carbon. no complaints. work well, easy to use. Had to buy extra tubing but that was my own fault for putting them away from the sump.
Best reactor on the Market By drgorecki on 6/5/13drgorecki would recommend this product to a friendThis reactor is absolutely best. Small foot print. Nice black look. Love it!
Well built but tubing is difficult to work with By BigDubb on 6/4/13BigDubb would recommend this product to a friendI bought the Deluxe with the MJ1200. Everything looked good out of the box, but when I attempted to hook up the tubing provided to the MJ1200 the two are the exact same size. I needed to use one of the pieces that came with the powerhead to join the two. Only partial water capacity is moving through the reactor. Additionally, the tubing is incredibly rigid and hard to work with.
The instructions weren't accurate either. They included steps to put the elbows on. The machined top already has these included so this is moot.
Some type of nipple or joining mechanism would be beneficial
Quality Reactor By Anh on 5/31/13Anh would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to install. I bought two of these for my tank, one run GFO and the other run carbon. Took me less than 10 minutes to setup both of them. The reactor is very well made. Water clear out after first night.
Tank is crystal clear By Roger on 5/30/13Roger would recommend this product to a friendI had some algea popping up nothing bad but it was a nusence. I added the Deluxe GFO reactor with the cobolt 1200 power head. The cobalt 1200 is so quit I didn't think it was working. I use a single reactor for both carbon and gfo on my 65 gallon reef tank, It is working great. I plan on adding the second treactor to seperate the carbon and gfo.
excellent for GFO and Carbon By trigger on 5/17/13trigger would recommend this product to a friendI have 2. Whats more to say, they have a quality feel and operate flawlessly with GFO and Carbon. However I would not recommend this design for biopellets as the reactor clogs easily and requires regular maintenance.
Excellent! By Dan on 5/11/13Dan would recommend this product to a friendGood quality reactor. Comes with mounting hardware.
Great product By oscar on 5/3/13oscar would recommend this product to a friendWas having some trouble with algae, added the reactor and started to see it go away great quality
Works as Promised By Brad on 4/25/13Brad would recommend this product to a friendVery easy to set up and use, with all the fittings you require. More tubing would be nice, but otherwise great.
GREAT QUALITY REACTOR By tim on 4/23/13tim would recommend this product to a friendWas having phosphate issues , ordered the deluxe reactor with the help from the brs video's and easy install of this reactor took care of my problems with phosphate problems in a couple weeks, will probably get a second one to add carbon along with my gfo
Awesome reactor By bruce on 4/13/13bruce would recommend this product to a friendI just set up this up as a GFO reactor and I love it. It is so easy to put together. It is very well built and feels like it could take a beating and still work. I definitely recommend it.
Great product By Patrick on 4/11/13Patrick would recommend this product to a friendEasy to setup and change out media well built and the mj1200 is more than enough cant wait to see the results by using gfo

Does the deluxe brs reactor use the s ame cartridge as the standard brs reactor?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Mike,
It sure does! The differences between the reactors are largely the color, the deluxe comes with a pair of push connect elbows to help with routing, and the bracket on the deluxe is built into the canister lid so its a bit more robust as well.

Which type (size) of carbon would work best in this reactor?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Ken,
I would suggest going with either the lignite carbon or the ROX carbon in the reactor. The ROX carbon is our best carbon by far, it can remove more, faster, while using less. The lignite carbon being the next best thing.

What fitting do I need to connect this to at 1/2" threaded pump?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Rory,
You would want a 1/2" NPT x 1/2" push connect, specifically sku 100003 on this page:

Can I use this for bio pellets instead , will the pump be sufficient ?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Joshua,
The reactor itself is fine to use as long as you take the sponges out of the cartridge. In terms of flow though it is not unusual to need a larger pump for biopellets, like a danner mag drive 5, which is why the BRS biopellet reactor comes with a fitting for connecting the biopellet reactor to larger pumps with 1/2" threaded outputs.
