Awesome Reactor By Nike on 9/10/2014Nike would recommend this product to a friendI just added the 150 to my 46G SPS dominate tank and I had forgotten what a difference it makes in the clarity of the tank. SPS corals are showing more PE in just one week. Worth the time and effort for the serious reefer!
I would recommend this prodcut to a friend By Patty_Chic on 8/31/2014Patty_Chic would recommend this product to a friendI have used this reactor for over a year on my 60 gallon rimless cube reef tank. It does do the job. I use the cobalt MJ - 900 pump and it works great. The top is hard to get off but I boil water and dip the top in the hot water for a minute or two and it comes right off. I am looking to buy another reactor but will purchase the BRS single due to the ease of changing the media.
Gets the job done and wont hurt the wallet By Zacc on 1/28/2014Zacc would recommend this product to a friendI own two of these reactors and they do their job. Ever since I added these to my sumps coupled with BRS Granular Ferric Oxide, I've had zero algae blooms or Diatom break outs. Keeps phosphates in check. Running them on 404 and 606 mini-jet pumps.
Phosban Reactor By Troy on 12/31/2013Troy would recommend this product to a friendProduct works great. No issues. I hang it on the side of the tank and converted it to use the biopellets. Price is great.
I wouldn't recommend this product By Nikolas on 9/28/2013Nikolas wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI did try to use this product for carbon and ferrous oxide as well as for biopelets Designed is flawed due to the fact that PhosBan uses a small mesh at the bottom of the device and on top in little period of time mesh become clogged and whole set up become useless I should say that mesh provided for biopelets use however for carbon and ferrous oxide the perforated plates at the bottom and top clogged quickly as well and make media stopped tumbling.Plus add some very inconvenient design of internal fittings which tend to disconnect or slip off and hard to set up in general plus that upper screw in cover that need to be watch out because it could leak any time The product poorly designed I garbaged it all and replace Yes with more expensive Reef Octopus product which is dream to use well designed I wish I didn't try to cheap and waste money on those PhosBan and go strait to buy ReefOctopus Don't make my mistake You get what you pay
Cheap By Moe on 9/6/2013Moe wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have this reactor for last 9 months. I have been fighting with GHA and it has is still an issue. The product is a cheap and is not meant to last. I am planning to upgrade to BRS dual reactor. I have read some good reviews about that. If u're planning to buy it, think twice. I have been using it with RowaPhos instead of phosban because it's much more premium quality GFO than phosban. If you happen to break the plastic rings while cleaning the product is dead. Sponge rings are not that great and wear out in months. sponges can be bought seperately but the shipping is expensive on these things. Over all prodcut is cheaply made and you don't get the bang for your buck.
just the right size By Dutch on 8/19/2013Dutch would recommend this product to a friendCurrent setup is a 75 gallon display and 40 gallon sump. Fits nicely into an already jam-packed sump. Easy assembly and holds more than enough GFO. Valve makes for easy flow adjustments. This reactor piggy backs off of another reactor currently housing carbon and Purigen. Don't overtighten the top otherwise it will be hard to get off.
Great product! By Fu on 4/20/2013Fu would recommend this product to a friendEasy to install, does what it is supposed to and works great! For the price you can't beat this. The only negative is the difficulty in removing the cap.
Great Product By Seth on 3/30/2013Seth would recommend this product to a friendThis has been my favorite phosban reactor. It holds a ton of media. I have this running on my 150 gallon with no issues. I am sure this would be just perfect for a 180 gallon as well. This unit does a great job not letting any media fall into the tank. Easy to set up, runs great!
Use a rubber glove to remove lid. By Mike on 3/27/2013Mike would recommend this product to a friendI've recently purchased this reactor and I'm happy with it so far. I also found the lid difficult to remove but mainly because I couldn't get a good enough grip. I put on a rubber glove and that made removing the lid very easy!
I'm not very confident in the rubber angles but even if they go bad it will be easy to use standard clear tubing.
good price and works By Kirk on 1/31/2013Kirk would recommend this product to a friendThis is the only reactor that I have had so I can not say that this is the worst one or the best but I can say it does get the job done, I like that it is small, work in or out of the sump, and easy to use. There is some bad though, hard to get off lid and plumbing isn't the greatest.
Cheap By Edward on 12/8/2012Edward wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have owned this reactor for 6 months now. It does do the job however I am replacing this with the BRS reactor soon. The rubber Elbows on the lid have cracks all over them now and I am concerned one day they will leak, when i am not home and cause a big mess. and i also like to add removing the lid to change out media is a real pain. I never tighten it down that tight but when you go to remove it. It is always stuck. I Usually have to bring the reactor to my vice to get the lid to budge.

im wanting to possibly hang this on the side of my sump using the bracket, do you happen to know how tall this reactor is? my sump wall is 16 1/2 in. would it hang there?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Tyler,
I measured 11 1/2" from the bottom of the reactor to the bottom of the bracket so you should have plenty of room to hand it in your sump.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
The PhosBan Reactor 150 is designed to push water upwards from the bottom and through the media. This forces an even distribution of water throughout the media and prevents channeling from occurring. The PhosBan 150 can be mounted under the aquarium or hung on the back of the aquarium. It comes with barb hose fittings for 1/2" tubing and a 1/2" barbed ball valve included for flow control. The Phosban 150 is compatible with with any pump with a flow rate between 100 and 250gph and 1/2" connections. Tubing sold separately.
Deal of the Day!
