Difficult to use but does the job. By OneCoolFish on 11/20/2016

I had this unit for about 3 years before I decided I'd had enough. I always had a problem with the top cover. Had to really tighten it to keep the top from leaking. As such, I would have great difficulty trying to open it. This always happened. Once in operation, however, it worked well. But it was just not easy to use.

These work great as media reactors. I use them for both carbon and GFO. It is important to change the sponges when you notice they start to become hard to clean. After several YEARS, I decided to just replace my very old ones with new ones. Thought about changing to another brand, but these are the best for the money. After a long while, they get scratched up and look pretty "used" so you might want to replace them. The elbows work fine, but if you want, you can use small zip ties for extra security.
I've used a couple and this one by far is the best. By sher on 6/8/2015

I've used a couple and this one by far is the best. I gave it 4 stars just B/C of the rubber 90s. for the price you can have 2 and switch out with a new one while you clean one out.
Rubber Elbows ruin product By Stephen on 5/6/2015

This product works OK, but the rubber elbows that connect to hoses are a bad design choice. They bend and buckle easily, and are really very flimsy. The quality of this product would be so much higher with decent rigid elbows.

I 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 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 1/28/2014

I 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.

Product works great. No issues. I hang it on the side of the tank and converted it to use the biopellets. Price is great.
