The ZEOvit system can produce some of the most amazing coral reef tanks, and if you ask anyone that has implemented the ZEOvit system they will tell you that it is a lot of work, but the results cannot be argued with. Avast Marine took one of the daily tasks, pumping the media, and found a reliable way to automate a task that commonly gets forgotten. The Avast Marine Vibe uses a vibratory motor under the reactor, that can be coupled with a simple timer, or aquarium controller to turn the motor on for one minute, multiple times a day. Depending on the media you are using, and your specific aquarium, there is no limit to how many times you can vibrate the reactor, but most people will say two times a day is sufficient. The Vibe is calibrated to vibrate the zeolite media enough to clean and dislodge bacterial films, without damaging the fragile stones.
The Vibe does require a feed pump, and we suggest using a strong pump that can push between 100-200 GPH through the reactor. We have had great luck with controllable DC pumps like the Varios-2 from Reef Octopus, or traditional AC pumps work very well also. Controllable DC pumps allow you to fine-tune the flow through the reactor, where AC pumps will require flow tuning with the included ball-valve.

Works Well, Keep in Mind Space and Vibration By tesstilly on 2/23/2018tesstilly would recommend this product to a friendThis reactor does exactly what it should, the motor for vibration really works. However, keep in mind that this needs space outside of your sump and you will need extra space to accommodate the vibration otherwise if it touches the wall of your stand it will sound like someone is taking a hammer to your stand. Thus, make sure you have extra space, and consider how you will keep the reactor from traveling across the floor due to its own vibration.
2L VIBE AUTOMATIC ZEOVIT REACTOR By joe on 2/21/2018joe would recommend this product to a friendBought this before BRS offer it. I used it for over a year (14 month)
I have it connect to the Apex. No more manual stirring. The motor never broke down. The noise level is a bit loud inside a cabinet. But outside should not be a problem. Very well built no leakage or missing parts when i bought mine. I highly recommend this product if you have a Apex. You could also use a timer (the one you use to turn on/off lights) if you don't have a Apex.
Here is my code for the Apex - on at noon and midnight and run for about a minute (55 sec)
OSC 000:00/000:55/719:05 Then ON
Parts missing By pweiss19 on 1/26/2018pweiss19 would recommend this product to a friendI was very excited to receive the Avast zeovit reactor. It appears to be well made. However, after going through the box, I realized that there were parts missing, specifically the four bolts, wingnuts and grommets that hold the top chamber to the base. Now I can't assemble the reactor and use it. I have to run out to the hardware store and buy the parts. They won't cost much, but after spending $380, I assumed that I would receive everything that I needed. Very frustrating.
Is this the prebuilt one or the one you need to build yourself.
Can this be used externally?
This reactor should be used externally and cannot be used as an internal reactor.
Have a great day!
