Installed this on a 37 gallon grow out tank and have had zero problems with it. Bought it as a Gfo reactor with brs Gfo and the pump. The best true plug and play I have purchased and the corals are loving it. Acan and blasto's have never been this open and my zoas are reaching for the stars. Phosphates have been an issue and no they are at a constant zero. Very happy with this product. Been over a month now and still zero issues.

I have installed two of these reactors on my system. They are very easy to install and use. I can replace the media without making a mess...I highly recommend!

i have the dual reactor carbon/gfo i find that running carbon first then gfo works great, just dont have the gfo tumbling too fast. Great product.

I've used these for carbon and gfo. They work great and you can't beat the price.
Great Reactor By Elisabeth on 2/22/2013

I love this thing. I work on a lot of tanks and have seen alot of reactors in action. Most a thin plastic tubes that crack or leak in a short time. I love this reactor because its tough. Its also super easy to clean. The tubing and connectors are quality as well. I wouldn't waste my money on a "brand name" reactor.
Very good buy for the money. By Kevin on 2/19/2013

Bought 2 reactors one for carbon and the other for gfo. The reactors are durable and made with very good material (dont think they will crack.) I've had them for 10 months now and definitely think i made the right decision in buying the reactors. The only advice I would give a potential buyer is to think of the fittings you will need in order to hook up the reactors to your liking. For example they give you flexible pipe with the reactors and the pump. Sure you could bend the pipe to wherever you want the water to go. However, if your going to mount the reactors you may want to buy some elbows in order to make quick bends.
great product and a great price By andrew on 2/17/2013

I bought this reactor for GFO, I find it to be built of quality parts and you get everything needed for installing,minus the pump. It feels super heavy duty, unlike some other reactor i have seen at the same general price point. If you looking for a reactor for GFO I don't think you kind find a better one. works exactly the way it should . I am very happy with mine.

best unit yet By best unit yet on 2/14/2013

Just got the my new unit up and running and by far it the best and well built unit I have. Its a little larger than some but seems to operate much better. The GFO tumbles every nice and slow, and much more evenly than other. It also looks like it will be lees prone to leaks.
I got the kit came with pump and everything needed to get the unit up and running, and only to a few minutes.
Best quality you can get By Edward on 1/28/2013

I've had many reactors, and this one is by far the best quality. Really heavy duty, solid stuff. I will only use this for all of my reactor needs.
Works great with an MJ1200 pump.
Gets clogged way too easy By Aron on 1/11/2013
Aron wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I really wanted to love this reactor since I like so many products here at BRS but I simply cannot. The filter is pretty easy to install and get going and took me about 15-20 min to get fully functional. I use (the older version) MJ1200 with this reactor that seems Ok for the reactor.
My biggest complaint is how easily this reactor gets clogged...I use it mixed with GFO and Carbon and after a week I get no flow coming out of it. I do not understand because the reactor is only 1/3 - 1/2 full of media. When it gets clogged I have to take it apart and clean out the inside canister to clean it out. My next problem is the sponges that are provided are there to hold the media in the top of the canister when you are mixing GFO and Carbon. However, once the media gets wet and heavy it starts to sink and the sponge sinks down a bit making the media tumble, and making the GFO break down the carbon. This drives me CRAZY. I am an OCD kind of person and I hate everything that is not perfection. I understand this product gets glamorous reviews but it simply did not work for me. I would not recommend it.
