    Mechanical filtration? Protein skimmers, filter socks & reactors - The BRS/WWC System Ep8 - BRStv

    How important is mechanical filtration? Today on BRStv, Ryan discusses the benefits of mechanical filtration in a reef tank to help remove organics and particulates before they can pollute the water. That means using filter socks for large particulates, skimmers for dissolved organics and media reactors for media like carbon. #BRSWWC #reefingmethods It wouldn't be BRStv without a giveaway!

    FAQ #22: Can I run biopellets in a BRS Dual Reactor along with carbon? | #52FAQ

    https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/protein-skimmers/reactors/biopellet-reactors.html Today on BRStv, we have another episode of BRS 52 FAQ where we answer all of your frequently asked reefing questions from our popular 52 Weeks of Reefing series. This week we are answering Lazarus Vintage's question from Week 26: “I've recently purchased the Dual Carbon/GFO reactor with pump and I have limited space. Can I convert the GFO side to use all-in-one biopellets, and continue running carbon like normal? The simplest answer is that unfortunately, no you can't use the dual reactor to accept biopellets without modification. The flow rate required by the pellets, versus what the carbon can handle is too drastically different. Additionally, the slime generated by the pellets could clog the sponges in the carbon canister. That being said, there are some other solutions you can implement! So follow along as we show you our preferred solution, provide some helpful insight, and help make r

    Week 24: Carbon, GFO & filter media for a clean, stable reef tank | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160

    It's Week 24, and this week we are talking chemical filtration which is the practice of using various medias to remove unwanted elements from the tank like color pigments, odors, phosphate, carbon dioxide, ammonia, heavy metals, accidental toxins, and a variety of other contaminants. We'll explore activated carbon, GFO, resins, CO2 removal media, and zeolites . We will share what they are for, some performance data as well as some of the various methods of implementing them in the aquarium. All of these medias are effective and safe but almost every experienced reefer will tell you limiting the amount of medias to those you find particularly valuable are generally a good idea for the tank because they all have some unknown or unintended effects on the water chemistry. for the most part there just isn’t a better replacement for a solid water change schedule but these medias have some undeniable results and why so many reefers use them as part of a large component of overall tank m

  5. Install a BRS Mini 5" Media Reactor | How To Tuesday

    Install a BRS Mini 5" Media Reactor | How To Tuesday

    There are few main differences between the mini 5" and the larger 10" reactor. First, the mini is designed to either run carbon alone or a mix of GFO and carbon. While it might be possible, we don't suggest running GFO alone because the reactor is a bit too short to get it to tumble properly. While the larger reactor can be used with different volumes of GFO and carbon by sliding the foam disk up and down, with the mini we suggest packing the small cartridge full which will prevent issues from the carbon and/or GFO tumbling and creating unnecessary fines. This means you can add around 3/4’s cup carbon to the reactor or a mix of one half cup carbon and a quarter cup of GFO. You will need a tool like a screw driver to pop the top off, add your media, replace the foam top and both plastic lids and you are ready to go. INSTALLATION: There are two ways to go about installing this small reactor which is probably heavily dependent on your spatial constraints. First one is to cut a
