These reactors are very ideal for clean. change of GFO less mess and a over all great item. Sold my old reactors and bought these for all my tanks even my frag tank.
Fantastic reactor, worth every penny and more By robbyvonawesome on 11/24/2011

This reactor is the best there is, hands down. I've run media reactors from several different manufacturers and I can easily say this is my favorite. I bought one to replace a Phosban reactor that I cracked, and then I liked the BRS reactor so much I ordered a second one to replace my existing carbon reactor. One thing to keep in mind is that this will not hang on the side of a sump like a phosban reactor will (at least not without a little DIY). For me, attaching it to the inside my stand worked out great. Another thing is that, in my opinion, the MJ1200 that is recommended is a little overkill. I had to dial back the flow quite a bit on my GFO to prevent too much tumbling action (ball valve is included). I paired my 2nd reactor with a MJ900 and still had more than enough flow. Overall, this is a VERY durable unit. When you pick it up, you can feel the heft, it's far more robust than most media reactors. Bulk Reef Supply always comes through with quality equipment, and this is no exception.
love the reactor By Robert on 11/23/2011

I love the ease of use of this reactor. It is hanging on the wall behind my tank and doubles to remove water during water changes. I hated the maxi Jet pump that comes with it- too loud- great reactor though!!

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!
Best purchase made By William on 11/17/2011

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.
