Why does BRS recommend this?

Reef Octopus his a home run with their Space Saving biopellet reactor. The hard part of matching the proper pump to the reactor has already been done as they do include the correct size pump with the reactors.

Created especially for the aquarist with limited space. Reef Octopus All-in-One Space Saving reactors are simple to setup up, saves valuable space and conserves costly energy. Powered by an energy efficient water blaster pump to provide the correct amount of feed flow for the biopellet media.

 

Created especially for the aquarist with limited space. Reef Octopus All-in-One Space Saving reactors are simple to setup up, saves valuable space and conserves costly energy. Powered by an energy efficient water blaster pump to provide the correct amount of feed flow for the biopellet media. Water is directly injected into the media chamber enhancing the pumps performance and provides even distribution of flow through the media. The water inlet /bottom chamber’s is a specially engineered structure that prevents the media from exiting the chamber and entering the pump when the power is off. A rigid sieve plate fixed on the top cover to prevent the leakage of pellets through the output of the unit. Unique in design this reactor doesn’t have a pipe in the middle of chamber making it super easy to remove the cover to refill the biopellet media. The cover has four install orientations, makes it easy to be set up in your sump.

Product Questions

Whats the footprint on this?
Question by: Tony Truong on Nov 8, 2019, 9:31 PM
Hi there-

Great question!

The footprint for this reactor would be 5.9" x 5.9".

Happy reefing! c:

I purchased this product within the last few months. Im wondering if its a good idea to feed an algae scrubber with the reactor output, and bypass the skimmer. Will the biofilm be a poor nutrient source for algae?
Question by: Brian Thompson on May 21, 2017, 10:10 PM
This would not likely be an effective arrangement for these filters. The algae cannot directly consume the biofilm or nutrients trapped inside, though the skimmer could at least partially remove this matter. You will also find that the bacteria in the biopellet reactor are competing with the algae for the same nutrients and there may be some competition for the available organic matter in the tank.

Happy reefing!

Where would you place this in the sump?
Question by: Frank Adamo on Dec 21, 2016, 1:20 PM
Great question! That is exactly how this is intended to be used. The pump will draw water from the sump and push it up into the chamber. :-)

What size tubing do I need to purchase for the output?
Question by: Meagan Sikorsky on Jun 19, 2022, 2:08 PM
This comes with an output of: ½” NPT PVC or 1/2" and 5/8” barb fittings. Ideally 1/2" or 5/8" tubing would be ideal.
