BRS GFO & Carbon Reactor - Jumbo
Easy to use, setup and maintain. Perfect for utilizing GFO and Carbon in the aquarium. No annoying thumb screws and leaky lids like other reactors. Pump Recommendation: Sicce Syncra Silent 1.5 (A larger pump compensates for the carbon clogging over time.) Choose a different pump depending on mounting height and amount of media used.
The JUMBO BRS GFO & Carbon Reactor features several distinct advantages over other brands.
- Heavy duty all plastic construction.
- High quality easy to use double O-Ring push-connect fittings.
- Easy to operate, clean and maintain.
- High quality ball valve for precise tuning.
- (2) 3 Ft section of tubing
- Filter wrench
- Ability to run carbon or GFO but not at the same time.
- Instantly attaches to popular pumps like Maxi-Jets using included push connect fittings.
- 1/2" fittings and ports throughout reduce head pressure and provide ample flow rates.
- Holds 6 cups of carbon or GFO (Designed to use only one media)
- Dimensions: 18.5"H x 11.5 "W x 8 "

I’m planning on installing one in my cabinet on my 210 gallon tank.
Here is a link to the replacement o-ring (https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/replacement-big-blue-canister-o-ring.html). Have a great day!
1. If i combined Carbon and GFO together in it. Would it be able to treat a 350 gallon aquarium?
2. If not, would I be able to run two Jumbo's, one carbon and one GFO and would they be able to treat a 350 gallon aquarium?
3. If this would be sufficient for my 350 gallon, with a medium bio load, how long do you think I would be able to go before having to refill the reactor?
4.Then my last question would be, would you have advice on a different reactor I might should use for my size aquarium if this jumbo isn't jumbo enough. :)
Thank you!! Wouldn't know what to do without BRS!!
Thanks for the question and yes you can physically mix both carbon and GFO in the jumbo reactor. You cannot run both types of media separately in the jumbo reactor since the carbon on the top will normally fall down and mix with the GFO anyways. Just as long as you physically mix them first there is no issue with running both at the same time. : )
The Jumbo will have a red pressure release valve at the top. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The unit is 18.5"H x 11.5 "W x 8 "
Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
A danner mag drive 5 or similar sized pump would be a solid choice. The danners happen to connect very easily with the included plumbing fittings.
Something like a danner mag drive 5 or 7 would be a good choice, as well as anything else in the similar flow range (though the including fittings will make attaching to a mag drive very easy).
one for GFO and one for carbon , i know that carbon doesnt need strong flow so what pump you think i should buy for each ?
Carbon doesn't require as much flow so on that reactor you could likely get by with something like a Mag-Drive 3. On the GFO reactor I would suggest the Mag-Drive 5 or 7.
The capacity of the reactor is 6 cups of media, how many gallons of tank that is good for entirely depends on what media you are putting in it though (so really you want to determine how much media you need, then size a reactor to fit that need). For example you would have about a 400g tank to exceed this reactors capacity with regular gfo, and an 800g tank to exceeds its capacity with GFO HC.
It is, that would be the wrench for 10 & 20" x 4.25" big blue canisters, sku 200038 found at the link below.
What was the media you were planning to put in it? It has a 6 cup capacity but 6 cups goes a long ways or a short ways to tank size depending on what your using it for.
The maximum capacity is about 6 cups.
I need to buy a replacement for the interior plastic canister, but don't find it on the site. Can you please direct me to the right part? Thanks.
Glad to hear you like them! You can find the replacement cartridges right here!
