    What's the best way to connect a pump to the reactor? I have an extra Maxi jet 1200 I thought I'd use, but the outlet is exactly the same size as the tubing for the reactor and the ½" reactor tubing won't stretch to fit over it.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Patrick,
    All it takes is a 1/2" push connect union which the reactors themselves come with. Otherwise I have them linked below as well.

    Would running one of these types of reactors be overkill on a Biocube29? Im wanting to run both GFO and Carbon and dont think the innovative marine will do so. Would also like something that I can use when i upgrade to a 90 this spring.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Chris,
    Thats not an issue. The chambers may look a little empty with the amount of media you use for a tank that size but it won't hurt anything and youll have it for your big tank this spring.

    Considering a brs carbon and gfo dual reactor. What is the gfo component and what does it do. Thanks brs team you guys rock

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey John,
    GFO stands for Granular Ferric Oxide and it is a phosphate remover. Its actually one of the few effective ways of removing phosphate from the tank which is pretty important as its not only an algae food, but it also inhibits the growth of stony corals as well. Here is a short video we did on GFO

    Looking to buy a couple of the ball valves included with this reactor. I don't see them listed separately on the site.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Lance,
    They are 1/2" inline ball valves. They can be found right here:

  • by Victoria Crow on November 19, 2013, @6:20 AM

    We have several BRS media reactors that we use interchangably with bio pellets, activated carbon, and gfo. I was looking on the site today to purchase two more, and see that the gfo and carbon reactor is not for use with bio pellet media. My question is what is the difference between the gfo/carbon reactor and the bio pellet reactor?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Victoria,
    The GFO reactor cartridges have sponges (which can be removed) vs the biopellet reactor doesn't have sponges but does include an additional larger fitting for using with bigger pumps as typically biopellets require higher power pumps.

  • by marco on September 10, 2013, @1:59 PM

    I have 185 gal reef tank (SPS, LPS and soft). Would this dual reactor work? I do 20% water changes every 2 weeks. Only parameter that is off is phosphate at .22.

    I have 15 medium size fish.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Marco,
    The capacity of the reactor chambers is 2 cups for GFO. For a tank that size it would work if you were using the high capacity GFO as you would only need 1.5 cups. If you were using the regular GFO you would need 3 cups and then it would not work (then you would want to look at something like the Jumbo reactor or a different manufacturer reactor like the Vertex).

  • by Travis on December 21, 2013, @1:34 PM

    Can I run bio pellets in the first chamber and a mix of carbon/GFO in the second?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Travis,
    The dual reactor is not compatible with biopellets. For biopellets you would want a separate biopellet reactor. The BRS biopellet reactor works great for tanks under 50g, otherwise something like the octopus BR series reactors are usually the next size up for folks.

  • easy & Simple By m2140 on 2/24/2015

    This thing is easier to setup and run than other media reactors. great for tanks that are up to 150 gallons.
  • Great Reactor, Great Price By Linda P on 2/20/2015

    I was fighting phosphates and nitrates so I added this to my system. They immediately started to lower once I hooked this up. It's working well and it was simple to hook up. The hanger is plastic so I do understand some people's concerns there. Mine is sitting beside my sump, not hanging.
  • Phenomenal! By ayaws on 2/17/2015

    Great reactor...exceeded my expectations. I especially love the internal strainers that make it easy to clean and fill. Well done! Easy as an RODI!
  • excellent product/ great price By scotty p on 2/16/2015

    An excellent investment in the future health of my tank. Works great and was easy to install. Hands down the absolute best packing job I have ever seen. Any UPSER would be impressed. I will look for more BRS branded equipment in the future.
  • perfection By - on 2/11/2015

    this is the most you can do for your tank. Other reactors have the center tube, changing filter media is A huge mess, not to mention trying to hook up hoses at angles in your sump, just to find them leaking or full of air. this is an actual RO reactor so filters water to 100%. I use a 250 gph Sicce syncra to go through 4 chambers which I keep chemi- pure in. cant use chemi pure in other reactors.
  • Dual reactor By Drag Racing Gramps on 2/8/2015

    I bought the dual reactor but I also purchased some extra fittings so I could plumb the two reactors to run separately from the pump. I used two separate ball valves so I can set the flow rates individually, they work great!!
  • Great Product By Coral Dude on 1/31/2015

    Easy setting and well build. Highly recommend it
  • Good One By Coral Dude on 1/31/2015

    It has been a week since I've set up this reactor and so far I'm very happy with this. Very easy to set up and works great. Highly recommend it.
  • Great product By Billy on 1/31/2015

    Great product wish I had bought one sooner, if your using gfo in socks , this is 100 times better, I had a bad hair algae problem, after a month it's almost all gone.
  • pretty good By CHEF on 1/29/2015

    This dual reactor i just got was a pain to set up, it leaked in about 3 spots, the hoses need to be pushed in way more than you may think, and the pump was a bit finicky, could take a little while to start up, the tool is neccesary to tighten the chambers or they will leak. but over all i am satisfied
  • Awesome Unit By George on 1/28/2015

    This is a great easy to use and very convenient system to have i wish i would of bought this unit sooner i love it! thanks BRS
  • Poor Mount By Michael on 1/28/2015

    The reactor works great and is constructed well except for its mount. The mount is a cheaper plastic material that bends when hung on the wall. Something has to be placed behind each canister to keep it level. There has got to be a stronger rust proof material available.
