- BR-140 Biopellet Reactor - Reef Octopus
These Revolutionary Media Reactors have a fluidizing cone bottom design to help keep the bio pellet media in suspension and evenly disperse the water upwards, without restricting the flow through the unit. These advanced reactor units also includes fastening screws on the lid for a sure tight seal and a mesh screen to keep the bio pellets within the reactor without the risk of restricting flow or clogging like other media reactors on the market.
- Dimensions: Diameter 5.5″x Height 21″
- Footprint: 7" x 7″(8.3" with Lid)
- Inlet and Outlet: ½” Direct PVC or ½" or 5/8” barb fittings
- Load capacity: 2000+ mL Biopellet

works but.. By medtoad on 8/25/2017medtoad would recommend this product to a friendHad this for a while. Did work to lower my nitrates/phospates I think though I was doing other things as well to lower them. the instructions were not very good and it took a while to figure out how to get the central wand back in without plugging it with biopellats (blow on it as you insert it). If you ever have a pump problem though, you must use all new biopellats or you will NUKE YOUR TANK! My supply pump broke and I got a replacement about 1.5 weeks later. Restarted the system and immediately had a HUGE ammonia spike (and horrible surfer smell) I guess from a all the aerobic bacteria dying in the reactor. Killed my favorite fish (achilles and a Moorish idol) as well as some corals though I turned it off again immediately after noting the problem (20-30 minutes)
Amazed! By Greg on 7/9/2017Greg would recommend this product to a friendFinally got a chance to set this up. I'm using a "Syncra Silent 4.0 Pump (951 GPH) - Sicce" to tumble one and a half cups of BRS biopellets. I don't expect it to change as I work up to four cups of pellets over the next month. The curved interior does a great job tumbling. Better than any DYI that I have done. I should have started with it in the beginning. I'm very pleased with my purchase and BRS was great (as always).
