It does work however after using a reactor that cost 4 times as much I realized you get what you pay for. I used it with the maxijet 1200 but the pump just didn't cut it. If you can afford a regular reactor go for it. If your going to get this one I would strongly recommend using a danner pump.
Saved my Reef Tank By Guy on 11/21/2011

I was fit to be tied, slime/snot algae-bacteria thing had been going on for as long as I could remember. As I began to consider throwing in the towel, I kept reading about GFO and the BRS Reactor.
I thought "Whats another hundred bucks?" (Reactor & High Capacity GFO) So I ordered it.
Now mind you, I had been testing for Phosphates and never got a reading, even using the D-D High Sensitivity kit.
Well, now, a month later, the slime has all but vanished from the tank, and I did not scrub it off. Changed the filter sock every couple of days and cleaned the skimmer about the same as the junk died off.
This thing ROCKS with the High Capacity GFO and ROX carbon!
Easy to setup, needed only an old MJ1200 I had in the garage to make it go.
Excellent Reactor - MaxiJet, not so much By AK on 11/20/2011

I am extremely happy with the reactor, but the Maxi-jet is so loud that I only ran it during the day on a timer - I mean ridiculously loud.
If you are using this for nano cube - get a MiniJet 606. It moves enough water and is Silent. The MiniJet 606 is the way to go. I mounted the reactor on the wall, so it's only has about 1' of head. Works like a charm. That Maxi-jet 1200 is WAY TOO LOUD!

I purchased 2 units one for GFO and one for Carbon. Both are running on a single mag 7 pump. Water is crystal clear, GFO tumbles nicely.
Overall design is superb. Their is not a better media reactor on the market in my opinion.
