Takes up a limited amount of space and tunbles biopellets better than any other octopus biopellet reactor I've had.

I recently purchased this for my 120.
Set-up was easy.
The only additional things you will need is PVC/reinforced tubing to plumb the unit to the vicinity of the inlet of your protein skimmer.
In addition to this it is recommended that the reactor be placed in a shaded area. My fuge is lighted, so I felt it best to block out the light to the cylinder of the reactor. This was an easy DIY. I just used some opaque material to make a sleeve to wrap around the cylinder and used nylon cable ties to clamp it. The material I chose was 1/64" black neoprene sheet. Works like a charm. I cut the sheet a little short so it does not fully wrap around and have a slit that is used to view the media and ensure it is tumbling.
This unit does come with a valve that screws into the inlet of the pump to control your flow.
