    Can this be run inline with the biopellet reactor? What kind of flow rates would be required?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Paul,
    You would want to run it separately from a biopellet reactor. The two medias require different rates of flow and would have negative effects on each other :-)

    Does the MJ1200 come with some kind of per filter so I'm not sucking up gunk in my pump?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Robbie,
    The pump does not come with them in the box but they are available (and suggested). I have included a link below:

    Will this hang on the back of my DT? If not can you recommend a quality HOB model and pump?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Kevin,
    The BRS reactor does not hang on the back. Units that hang on the back aren't as common, the phosban reactor is the model most folks will use in that situation. The same cobalt mj1200 is a great pump option for it as well.

    how much total combined media will single reactor hold carbon & gfo together...

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Eric,
    The max capacity for the reactor would be a total of 3 cups of media if it doesn't need to tumble (like carbon/gfo mix). If you were actually maxing out the reactor though you might want to consider a larger pump then the standard mj1200.

    When changing the filter media in th BRS media reactor, what are the steps that need to be taken? I was conserned about getting water everywhere when unscrewing the lid of the reactor to change out media. Thank you BRS!

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Landon,
    Changing the media is actually really easy. You just want to make sure that the pump is off and then you unscrew the bottom canister. While you might spill a few drops if your careful almost all of the water will stay in the bottom canister and you can carry the canister media and water to the sink to drain it and replace the media. You can leave the main bracket mounted, the pump in the tank, etc.

    Is this the same as the one for use with bio pellets? Just with foam pads, or is the cartridge different?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Daniel,
    The biopellet reactor doesn't have foam pads and it also includes fittings for a larger pump (bigger pump is needed for biopellets) wheras the gfo/carbon reactor only comes with an adapter for the cobalt pumps.

    Do you sell replacement foam pieces to hold the media in place? Mine have lost their spring.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Steven,
    We sure do! You can find them right here:

    What is the difference between this one and the brs biopellet reactor? Can I use this one to run biopelletes?

    Bulk Reef Supply The biopellet reactor doesn't have sponges and comes with fittings to adapt to larger size pumps (which are generally necessary with biopellet reactors). This reactor will physically hold them but wouldn't come with the fittings for larger size pumps.

  • DIY cannot beat this price By Aaron on 2/23/2015

    After making my own DIY reactor (and in no way knocking DIY), I got online and found this little beauty. It was hard to say no for the price. Fittings and valves from the depot were just as much. Put it on my own pump with a ball valve in front of the reactor, used the provided 1/2 inch flow adjuster as well, and this thing tunes in perfectly for GFO fine grain. Should have just bought this first. Hope this helps someone.
  • Awesome product By trav on 2/18/2015

    This is a quality piece of equipment. It's simple to install. Can set up tubing at pretty much any angle with the quick connect fitting. I would expect something of this quality to cost a lot more than it does. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a quality reactor and a good price. The mj1200 is pretty nice too, quiet and can be mounted a bunch of different ways.
  • Awesome product! By Chris on 2/13/2015

    Wrote to BRS after having a green dust algae issue in a newly established reef tank and they suggested running a GFO reactor to remove algae food (phosphates). I purchased this unit and ran a GFO/Carbon mix. Everything you need, with the exception of GFO & Carbon, comes in the box. It was very easy to setup and changes were noticeable by the next day. Thanks BRS for clearing up my algae issue!
  • Solid construction, Easy to setup, Pump is very quiet By Chen on 2/11/2015

    Very easy to setup, I followed the video. The construction seems to be very solid and the pump is amazingly quiet. I actually bought the same pump separately for ATO. The tubes are not very flexible (compared to common vinyl tubes) and I was afraid of bending it too much. Not a problem for me though, just FYI.
  • Easy to setup and use By Mike on 2/2/2015

    This reactor is easy to setup. The push fittings allow you to cut the tubes to the desired length and just push them into the connectors, done. It comes with an adapter that allows you to control the flow rate for your application. The canister itself is a heavy duty plastic very similar to ones used for RODI units. Over all very simple to use. I'm planning on getting a second one and would recommend it to other.
  • Well Built By mark on 1/29/2015

    I purchased the BRS after reading several reviews. Very nicely built and easy to get going
  • Easy to Install, Works Great By ScottB on 1/26/2015

    I bought the "BRS GFO & Carbon Reactor - Single model" to replace my Phosban Reactor for running GFO. Installation and setup where a breeze. The media cartridge makes for a no mess job. Great product at a great price.
  • Quality product...great value By Rick on 1/14/2015

    This will be my 5th one of these. They are very reliable and easy set up. Well constructed...no leaks in any of them.
  • awesome By Brian on 1/3/2015

    VERY good quality and design.
  • Good Product By Wade on 12/23/2014

    This reactor was much heavier construction than I was expecting. Went together easy and does a job well. Adjustment was easy. It tumbles GFO nicely. Been running it a few weeks now and have no pump noise. Its already made a difference in my tank.
  • Excellent product By Luis on 12/22/2014

    I received item well packed, installed in no time videos were a great help. Has been running without any leeks or problems. I had ordered the GFO and Carbon as well and and are also top quality items. Tank looks great

    keep up the good work...
  • Easy to setup and gets the job done By Harris on 11/23/2014

    I purchased this reactor with the MJ 1200 pump and really like how easy it was to set up and how well the product works. This is a heavy duty reactor and I don't see it breaking anytime soon. Also, the MJ pump is extremely quiet. Overall a great combination.
