The PhosBan Reactor 150 is designed to push water upwards from the bottom and through the media. This forces an even distribution of water throughout the media and prevents channeling from occurring. This is also great for fluidizing media such as GFO where the filter media needs to tumble gently and evenly. The PhosBan 150 media reactor has a low profile and built-in hanging bracket making it ideal for "hang on the back" applications. The Phosban reactor works with a variety of filter medias such as activated carbon, GFO, and biopellets.
- Great for HOB applications
- Includes ball valve
- Works great with Phosban Media
- Requires feed pump
The PhosBan 150 can be mounted under the aquarium or hung on the back of the aquarium. It comes with barb hose fittings for 1/2" tubing and a 1/2" barbed ball valve included for flow control. The Phosban 150 is compatible with any pump that uses 1/2" tubing and a flow rate between 100 and 250gph.
- Max Media Capacity - 200 grams
- Inlet Tube - 1/2"
- Outlet Tube - 1/2"
- Max Flow Rate - 250 gph
- Dimensions - 14.25" H x 3.0" W x 4.0" L
- Distance required behind tank for HOB application - 4.0" min
- Phosban 150 body
- Phosban 150 Lid
- Ratchet Clip
- Sponges (2x)
- Dispersion Plate
- Ball Valve
- 2" Tube
- 9" Tube
Note: Media, Tubing, and pump sold separately.
Unfortunately, this product will only work with 1/2" ID tubing and the RO tubing is 1/2" OD so they would not be compatible. Have a great day!
Thank you for reaching out.
A Sicce 1.0 would be a great pump to add to the PhosBan 150:
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Have a great day!

This potentially could work at both tubing are 1/2" inside diameter. The reactor would reduce flow from the system but could work by using the barb fittings. Zip ties or small hose clamps may be used as well. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
When using Carbon or GFO in a reactor you should use the recommended amount listed in our aquarium calculator. There is a chance that running excessive GFO will shock the system with changes. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
A popular and durable option is the Sicce 1.5 which has 1/2" barb fitting to work with tubing. An alternative can include the Cobalt MJ1200 or the maxijet 1200 as well. I have included a few links below!
These can work well on tanks from 75 to 150. If on larger tanks you typically will need alternative higher capacity media such as ROX 0.8 Carbon or High Capacity GFO. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Phosban reactor can work great with GFO! Make sure the foam pads are in place and it will work without issue. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
im wanting to possibly hang this on the side of my sump using the bracket, do you happen to know how tall this reactor is? my sump wall is 16 1/2 in. would it hang there?
I measured 11 1/2" from the bottom of the reactor to the bottom of the bracket so you should have plenty of room to hand it in your sump.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
