OK But requires weekly Maintenance By Ellery on 3/15/2014

As in another review it works well if a proper pump is added for flow and weekly cleaning is down on the chamber screens on top and bottom getting clogged with the film. If they created a screen unique for biopellets that are bigger than that for the GFO/Carbon then it would help reduce the maintenance required.

Not for biopellets By trigger on 5/17/2013

I have 1 of these reactors and 2 of the black brs ones. They are perfect for GFO and Carbon, however i dont think they are ideal for Biopellets what so ever. After just 1 week the biopellets are barely tumbling because of gunk buildup inside the filter that restricts flow. This has to be cleaned weekly to keep the biopellets tumbling. Having to do this makes it a chore so I am seriously considering a different reactor. I hope BRS will re-design this reactor so that it doesnt clog as easily. Do not recomment for BIO Pellets. Only for GFO and Carbon.

The reactor is made of thick plastic and is built very well. The quick connect and swivels help get it up and running fast. Love this reactor.
GREAT REACTOR FOR THE MONEY By Pete on 10/3/2012

Works like a charm, using a maxi jet 1200 for a good flow.
Old two little fishes reactor too many problems.
Very happy and I'd recommend to all you reefers out there this is the reactor for you.
best buy for your money By r. wilmeth on 9/22/2012

like every BRS product i have ever bought this reactor is very high quality. like alot of people my first reactor was a converted phosban reactor powered by a maxi jet. no mater what i did i could not get a good even flow and with biopellets that is key. when i recieved my BRS reactor i was imediately impresed. i had it mounted in minutes and out of curiousity i hooked the maxijet up to it.because of the design of the reactor it had all the pellets moving. my reactor is mounted at sump level so the maxijet only has 6 inches of head presure any more i would have gone with a bigger pump.i have a much more expencive unit on another tank and like it alot but it cost more than three times as much as the BRS reactor.
My Nitrates read zero! By Andrew on 6/7/2012
Andrew would recommend this product to a friend
I have an overstocked reef tank... enough said my nitrates were always a bit high even when I did a lot of water changes. I had to do one every week to keep it at bay. My corals never really had amazing colors and great growth. I bought this product and the BRS Bio Pellets and since than my phosphates read zero! I love this thing! Only thing is that my SKIM SMELLS FOUL but i can deal with that!

Great Little Reactor By Rod on 3/10/2012
Rod would recommend this product to a friend
So long as you use the proper pump to keep the flow at a level that will tumble the bio pellets this is very effective little bio pellet reactor. I run mine with the recommended Mag 5 pump and it run flawlessly. Just purchased a second unit for my new SPS build... Very effective on keeping the nitrates down.
