    Is there any way that I can hang this on the back of my JBJ NANO 28 gallon?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Bryant,
    Unfortunately the dual reactor doesn't have a hang on back configuration. It could either be mounted to the wall,stand, etc behind the tank or even just set on a desk. If you need something that has the ability to hang on the rim of a tank then I would look at the Two Little Fishies Phosban Reactor. It has a hang on back mount. The 150 will have plenty of capacity for a tank your size.

    Hello,
    I will be upgrading my tiny 14 gallon tank to a nice 50 gallon soon. Is this product recommended for a brand new tank?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Hank,
    I would suggest running GFO and carbon on any tank, even better if its a new tank as you can help keep it in good shape rather then trying to to recover after things get out of hand.

    What size carbon can use on dual reactor. U have multible. What gfo

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Mike,
    Most folks use the lignite carbon in the reactor as its easy to work with in that setup. As far as GFO goes, most people use the standard GFO. The only reason to use the high capacity GFO would be if you need more then fits in the 2 cup capacity of the reactor, because the HC is twice as dense it goes twice as far for the same volume.

    could i run the duel gfo and carbon reactor with biopellets in one chamber and carbon/gfo mixture in the second, or would the pressure the biopellets need to tumble be too much.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Joe,
    The dual reactor is not compatible with biopellets. As much as we would wish otherwise, biopellets do not play nice with other medias and need to be run in an entirely separate reactor :-)

    what is this used for

    Bulk Reef Supply It is generally used for GFO and carbon, though folks use it for other types of media.

    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

  • gfo& carbon reactor By Izzy on 3/25/2015

    excellent product and easy to hook up with instruction and videos if you don't know how to use it,I would definitely recommend to all my friends.
  • Single dual reactor By Greg on 3/24/2015

    I'm splitting the dual reactor to create 2 single reactors with a "T" and another ball valve run off of one pump.
  • Very nice product, wish it was bigger to place more media By Harold on 3/17/2015

    A great product, just opened the box and 20 minutes latter it was running with no leaks or problems. Just wish it was bigger to place more media…
  • Works just fine By VP on 3/9/2015

    Included plumbing assumes installation in sump. I placed a follow up order for additional connectors and tubing to hide the pump behind some rocks. It's working just fine.
  • 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.
