Filter Media Reactors
We took a unique approach to our filter media reactors by using standard RO Canisters with refillable cartridges which have proven to have some great benefits over traditional upflow media reactors. Perhaps the most attractive feature is the easy, mess-free maintenance. With traditional reactors, you typically need to remove the entire assembly, including the pump and tubing to swap out your media. The BRS Reactors allow you to keep the plumbing and reactor bracket mounted in place while you remove the canister and replace it with new media. This cuts the maintenance time by up to 75% or more if you have a filled cartridge ready to go. The refillable cartridges are easy to clean and refill and you won't be spilling water all over the place or dumping media into your tank by accident.

Reverse Osmosis Systems
We build all of our RO/DI systems in-house because we want to offer the best possible price without compromising the quality of the components and filter cartridges. We have also designed the systems to meet the unique needs of saltwater aquarists because we understand the importance of having purified 0 TDS water on demand.
BRS RO/DI Systems feature Mur-Lock Push-Connect fittings, NSF-certified high-performance filters, DOW Filmtec RO membrane, multiple source water connections, filter wrench, an auto shut-off valve, and a Limited Lifetime Warranty. The value plus systems come with a pressure gauge, flush valve, and dual-inline TDS meter for easy maintenance and monitoring of system performance.
4 Stage RO/DI Systems - Perfect for city water that is treated with low amounts of chlorine, or well water with very minimal contaminants. Can easily be upgraded to suit your specific needs.
5 Stage RO/DI Systems - Our most popular systems that handle common impurities found in well water and tap water treated with chloramines.
6 Stage RO/DI Systems - If you are not sure what is in your water or you know it contains hard-to-remove contaminants like chloramines, phosphates, nitrates, silicates, etc.
7 Stage RO/DI Systems - Made for aquarists with high-production demands. Features an optimized 3-stage Dwionization filter for highly-efficient resin consumption.
In addition to our RO/DI systems, we source the highest-quality replacement filters and package them together in money-saving kits so you won't ever be left wondering which filters you need. All of the filters are NSF certified and meet American water quality standards.
CO2 Scrubbers & Media
Many aquariums are plagued with an abundance of dissolved CO2 which acidifies the water. The resulting low pH inhibits the growth of corals and can lead to increased algae growth. A CO2 scrubber is an incredibly simple solution to remove CO2 from the air entering your protein skimmer and therefore, helps to reduce the amount of dissolved CO2 in your aquarium water. You will not only see a more natural pH level of around 8.3 but you will also ensure your corals reach their full potential.
The BRS CO2 Scrubber takes a nod from our very popular media reactors and is made using a standard RO/DI style canister with a refillable cartridge. It's extremely easy to maintain and will integrate into your existing protein skimmer without any modifications.
Reef Chili & Fish Foods
Reef Chili was born out of the desire to have a single coral food that contained enough variety to feed your entire reef and provide optimal nutrition without having to feed multiple types of food. The result was a blend of 7 different highly nutritious food sources for corals that together provide the most nutritionally dense commercial coral food on the market. Reef Chili is, in fact, one of the only coral foods to be scientifically proven to accelerate growth among your corals.
Falling in line with the idea of building a single, highly-nutritious food that can sustain your entire tank, BRS also offers a variety of different dry fish foods and "food ingredients" that can be mixed together to create a unique food concoction. Create an extremely varied mix of food without having to deal with messy frozen foods on a daily basis and be confident your fish are getting complete nutrition.
