Nice bio-pellet reactor By David on 5/7/2015

Using this in the sump for a 120 gallon display tank. Running about 650 ml of pellets. The unit has a small footprint for the volume of pellets, which fits well in the sump. The cone base fluidizes the pellets nicely. The unit was easy to assemble and install. All the fittings fit snug and do not leak.

So far, so good. It's only been running about 2 weeks or so, but is very well built. I'll report back later on how it's doing with nitrate reduction. I love the kits that BRS puts together to make it easy.

This combo pack is great. I 'm currently running this reactor with the Mag drive 7 pump. It works like a champ. The reactor is well made and overall performance is excellent.

This has been working great since setup. However, when setting up, if one tiny little pellet gets stuck in the lid, it will not seal and a watery mess is made. Make sure when you setup and add pellets, that the lid is completely clear. There is no room for error.
Well built and very cool looking product! (BR-70) By PT on 3/10/2012

I added this shortly after I started on cycling my 24" cube, not sure but it might have helped my cycle time (around 10 days with dry rock). I did add some starting cultures from Microbacter7 and the hagen cycling product. The product is certainly well made and would definitely buy again. Consider getting this at the start too as you wont have to care about dealing with effects on the tank later. Consider putting a ball valve on the input as its nice to turn it off and on to break up the pellet clumping at the beginning. Im running this and the BRS Carbon reactor with a mag 3 and seems to have enough flow to keep both running.
One thing to keep in mind is to make sure you plumb correctly as the sch 80 union fittings dont seem to match what you can get in local stores .. I ended up making a mistake and having to wait for a replacement on the union.

it costs a little more than some reactors, but I'm very impressed with this reactor. It is very well built, pretty much comes fully assembled. Great product overall.

BR-70 Combo By Mark Neil on 11/6/2011

I've purchased this combo and have been using it for a few weeks (100g tank). I've noticed my sand getting clearer and better skimmer performance. I used about 200ml of pellet out of the 500ml pack. I think this should be more than enough for 100 gallon.
