This reactor is absolutely best. Small foot print. Nice black look. Love it!
Well built but tubing is difficult to work with By BigDubb on 6/4/2013

I bought the Deluxe with the MJ1200. Everything looked good out of the box, but when I attempted to hook up the tubing provided to the MJ1200 the two are the exact same size. I needed to use one of the pieces that came with the powerhead to join the two. Only partial water capacity is moving through the reactor. Additionally, the tubing is incredibly rigid and hard to work with.
The instructions weren't accurate either. They included steps to put the elbows on. The machined top already has these included so this is moot.
Some type of nipple or joining mechanism would be beneficial
Quality Reactor By Anh on 5/31/2013

Very easy to install. I bought two of these for my tank, one run GFO and the other run carbon. Took me less than 10 minutes to setup both of them. The reactor is very well made. Water clear out after first night.

I had some algea popping up nothing bad but it was a nusence. I added the Deluxe GFO reactor with the cobolt 1200 power head. The cobalt 1200 is so quit I didn't think it was working. I use a single reactor for both carbon and gfo on my 65 gallon reef tank, It is working great. I plan on adding the second treactor to seperate the carbon and gfo.
excellent for GFO and Carbon By trigger on 5/17/2013

I have 2. Whats more to say, they have a quality feel and operate flawlessly with GFO and Carbon. However I would not recommend this design for biopellets as the reactor clogs easily and requires regular maintenance.

Very easy to set up and use, with all the fittings you require. More tubing would be nice, but otherwise great.

Was having phosphate issues , ordered the deluxe reactor with the help from the brs video's and easy install of this reactor took care of my problems with phosphate problems in a couple weeks, will probably get a second one to add carbon along with my gfo
Awesome reactor By bruce on 4/13/2013

I just set up this up as a GFO reactor and I love it. It is so easy to put together. It is very well built and feels like it could take a beating and still work. I definitely recommend it.

Easy to setup and change out media well built and the mj1200 is more than enough cant wait to see the results by using gfo
Great reactor! By Christian on 4/4/2013

Well built, SOLID mounting and super easy setup! Mine is mounted next to my sump, so I have next to no head pressure. I had a spare MJ1200 (same as recommended) and had to cut it back by more than half. May need a smaller pump, but that’s not much of a complaint. Just consider your mounting location before purchasing the pump to run this.

The design is simple and straightforward and seems to work well. The quality is good. Only complaint is the stiffness of the tubing making it tricky to route to the best place for the pump. The extra elbow connectors help with that though.
Great value By Durff on 3/22/2013

Purchased two of these. Running BRS GFO in one and BRS Carbon in the other. Easy to setup, quick to change media, and simple to control. Tube is stiff, but comes with elbows. So no need to bend tube, and stronger is better IMO.
There great!!! By Durff on 3/21/2013

I purchased this product in hopes of eliminating Phosphates in my 29g. Not only was the reactor a BREEZE to set up and install, it has also turned my phosphate levels into a big ZERO.
As soon as you take it out of the box the quality of the reactor is obvious. Thank you BRS. I'll be ordering again with confidence.
Great Reator By Mark on 3/9/2013
Mark would recommend this product to a friend
I bought two of these to replace my dual reactor. I was tired of loosening and tightening the containers to let the air escape. The air release is a great addition. The thick heavy duty plastic is another plus for attaching it to the frame of my stand. The dual reactor would swing back and forth due to the thin material. I would recommend this to anyone.
Great Product-Does what it's supposed to. By Darcy on 3/6/2013
Darcy would recommend this product to a friend
Great reactor. Easy to use. Easy to adjust. BRS instructions make it a snap to set up. In my application with only using less than half the reactor capacity, the MJ1200 is a bit of overkill. I replaced it with an MJ600 and it's still more than enough flow through the unit. I still have it throttled back a fair bit with the included valve. It probably will be just right at toward the end of the lifespan of the carbon as the reactor media slowly gets clogged. Those that use the reactor at its maximum capacity will probably find the Cobalt MJ1200 a better match than do I.
Just want I needed! By cdbstl76 on 3/4/2013

No more media bags. No more taking up room in my sump. No more use of a less efficient method! Using this as a mixed carbon and GFO unit, it works for me. Mounted just above my sump, with all the parts that are needed... I just feel like my tank is that much better off. Time will tell on the actual efficiency, but I have all the faith in the world it will be better.

I wish I knew earlier on about using GFO for controlling phosphates. I purchased this unit to battle an algae outbreak / new tank syndrome. After 3 weeks of using this reactor with BRS standard GFO, my tank and rocks are now algae free. I'll never have another reef tank without one of these!

Super nice piece of equipment, real compact, hoses are a little stiff that they send but all n all very happy with it.

I have discovered that Bulk Reef Supply only sells high end quality products and this reactor is no exception. It is working like a charm, and took literally minutes to install. The hoses just pop into place. It comes with additional elbows, which worked wonderfully for us.
The only thing you have to be careful about is to really push the hoses in very tightly. We tested the unit outside. .. which was great because it leaked in all the joints. However as soon as we used a little muscle and pushed the hoses in tighter. Then everything was completely sealed.
This unit is so well made and we love how the joints are all able to spin. Makes adjusting to any tight area a dream.
