this would be much too small and clog very quickly with bio pellets. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This will absolutely fit in the compartment and absolutely will not work with Zeovit media. (For Zeovit you will need a Zeovit reactor) Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
I would submerge as much of this reactor as your installation option allows as this will help reduce head pressure on the pump and improve performance/flow through the media. That being said, I am currently running one with about 10 inches of the reactor body above water with no problems.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
Just the standard GFO should be all you need with this reactor (if your tank was big enough to necessitate the HC, you would be needing a different reactor).
The pump does need to be submerged and this reactor really wouldn't function externally as the water exits out holes located in the bottom of the reactor and can't be plumed to a different location. If you want something external something like a BRS reactor would be more along the lines of what your looking for.

Great design By Tim on 1/28/2016Tim would recommend this product to a friendLove this product and best on I've owned to date. Super easy to set up and change GFO or carbon and the design looks great also. Wish I had this earlier to deal with changing GFO.
Awesome! By Brian on 2/23/2015Brian would recommend this product to a friendGreat little media reactor! Fits perfect and looks great on my Nuvo! Only problem I have with it is that a few days after changing the media the pump will start to make noise, guessing from added resistance as the media gets dirty! other then that its great!
Excellent little unit By Scott on 5/13/2014Scott would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this unit for my nuvo 16 and I couldn't be happier. It fits perfectly into the filter area. This was designed specifically for the Nuvo models and the pump is extremely quite because of the intimate fit with the Nuvo models. I would think it could be used in other aquariums or sumps and the footprint is small enough for tight applications. I am running both carbon and GFO at the same time- not the most efficient but changing out the little amount of GFO I use sooner than I need to is not a huge issue for me. My water has not looked better and my corals -SPS- are happier than ever.
Well made & perfect size but it rattles! By Mike on 12/16/2013Mike would recommend this product to a friendI use this in the sump on my 25 gallon cube and the Minimax Desktop is the perfect size. It is well made, easy to adjust, and easy to load. The only problem I have with it is that it rattles and the pump is louder than I would like. It is definitely a keeper though.
Perfect for my BioCube 29 By Jaculus on 12/11/2013Jaculus would recommend this product to a friendWhile it is perfect in size to fit in the back of my BioCube 29 I found the main advantage of this over many of the other smaller "nano" size reactors is that this one stays in the back of the tank while you change the media. It's very easy to change the media. Just watch the videos. The price was more than the other small nano reactors but worth the extra $$
GOOD PRODUCT! By Jonathan on 11/21/2013Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendI got this for my 29G BioCube because it fit in the back and has no external plumbing. The size is great and the operation is easy. I am disappointed as the little thumbscrew that pushes against the reactor to keep its height stripped out while I was getting everything set up. I'm simply using a zip tie around the reactor to act as the thumb screw which makes it slightly more of a pain to remove but that shouldn't be too often. Overall great product.
great product! By Deyan on 11/17/2013Deyan would recommend this product to a friendThis media reactor is the perfect fit for nuvo 16 not only looks great but works great! All in all I was more impressed by the support of BRS
My item was damaged during shipping & other errors but in the end of the day, bulk reef supply showed me a side to their company which often not seen now days, Excellent customer support no run arounds nor a hard time to get my problem resolved. I can honestly recommend these guys to a friend or someone in the reef hobby.
Also the vids from youtube are quite informative. Thanks again BRS, Deyan Font, Homestead,Fl.
Excellent By AnitaPage on 9/26/2013AnitaPage would recommend this product to a friendSimplicity and perfection in a single device. Easy to install and easy to change the media.
Great Product! By Barbra on 9/7/2013Barbra would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this for my Nuvo 24 gallon. It was easy to install and I noticed an immediate difference in my water quality. I am using with GFO to control phosphates. The clarity of my water is already greatly improved and it has only been installed about 18 hours.
