Works, but needs work first By Bill on 3/10/2014Bill wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe construction is nice on this. However, two things quickly became a pain:
1. The hose barbs included are 3/4". I had to go get hose adapters to convert from 1/2" to 3/4" (I wasn't about to try running 3/4" vinyl tubing to/from the reactor).
2. The foam pads are too course. You can't use them with BRS ROX carbon, the carbon just flows right through the foam and ends up in your tank.
Once I got the hose adapters, and cut out some finer foam pads to replace the Vertex pads, the reactor is working just fine. Build quality seems good.
If I had to do it over again, I'd save the money and get a BRS or TLF reactor.

Bulk Reef Supply Hey Bob,
With zoevit you want to run 1L of media for every 100g your tank is. So if you have about a 200g system I would go with the 2L reactor!
