Great for curing/cycling By John on 6/26/2016

I just started my first salt water tank. Because I was starting fresh I wanted to cure and cycle the rock at the same time. I heard there could be a pretty bad smell from the curing rock so I knew I needed something to keep that from happening. (Otherwise the wife was going to for sure shut me down!) I used this reactor with the .8 rox carbon on a 210 gallon tank with 150 lbs of Pukani and there isn't any smell at all. This is my first time doing this so I don't have anything to compare it to, but from what I have read and heard this seems to be doing the trick perfectly! Also keeps the water perfectly clear! Great product, both the reactor and rox carbon!

Easy to set up, have it sitting in my sump. Changing out media is easy.

This unit is the perfect solution for GFO/Carbon reactor. The added value of the Deluxe version cannot be overstated, but IMHO, the color scheme looks great above my "Display Sump." I needed no extra parts to get this up and running (other than media). Definitely a quality build as well.

Reactor worked really well...some of the reviews on here talk about how the connections leak. Well this was true for me as well...however in my experience it was because I simply did not have the tubes pushed into the fittings very well. Once the fittings are on I will say there really hard to get off, but you can get them off. You have to pull in the lip on the fittings and then pull. The reactor itself works great...is super easy to use. I recommend getting the pump they recommend as well its great! Also would maybe recommend the upgrade tubing kit. The tubes a kind of stiff...but you just have to massage them a bit and work with them and they will work fine. There heavy duty which is good because even if you bend them they wont crack or anything.

Nicer than the standard version , solid ,good quality. I'm sure functions the same but if looks are important , this is the one.
Overall Great Product with one Simple Question By William on 3/21/2016

When using this product with GFO you are instructed to restrict the flow so that to have a gentle tumble of media so that not to grind it down to a fine dust. With that thought I bought this and paired it up to a MJ900 pump and still have to restrict the flow to half in order to get that gentle tumble. my question.. Why do I need a MJ1200 when I would have to restrict the flow down to that of a 50% flow on my MJ900. Now.. with a Carbon GFO mix maybe I could go higher as it would not allow for a tumble.

I have ran this reactor for about a month now and have absolutely no complaints. Super quite and heavy duty construction. Will be purchasing another unit in the near future to run GFO.
Quality!!! By DC on 2/24/2016

I love that everything you need is included and made of high quality materials. I wish I would have ordered the silicone upgrade kit because the tubing that is included is very stiff and hard to work with in a tight cabinet. Other than that is was easy to set up and it is working grate.

Had these set up in a few minutes. Rinsed out my media, adjusted them as per the BRS video, and now they are running. The foam pads are really dense, so no carbon fell to the bottom, and the gfo just barely tumbles. A really well made product. RECOMMENDED 5 stars.
