Almost Perfect By Chris on 12/1/2017Chris would recommend this product to a friendI bought this about a year ago, and I have been struggling with it from day one. I was in the process of removing it from my tank when i realized that I was shipped the wrong pump with it. The pump I recived did not have the 1 1/4 fitting that the Aquatrance AQ-1000 comes with, so i have been having issues getting a hose to fit in the adapter instead, so i never had full flow. I will contact Customer Support to see if i can get a replacement pump.
Perfect!!!! By Mikebick on 11/7/2016Mikebick would recommend this product to a friendI have tried many, this is perfect. Very easy to use, i really like the one screw to get into it to add more. Reef octopus make the best products. My pretein skimmer is made by them too and its the best.
AWESOME! By carmelgu on 12/30/2015carmelgu would recommend this product to a friendHave the Reef Octopus BioChurn 120INT on a 120 gal reef tank using BRS biopellets and the ZeoBac, ZeoSnow, Zeo 7 system....within one week my water is SOOO clear and coral is SOOO happy! Awesome product!
Great product By Davidfrances on 8/19/2014Davidfrances would recommend this product to a friendI own two of Reef Octopus's BioChurn's, a 170 INT and now this 120INT. The 120 INT is great, it fits inside my sump, and seems to churn the media nicely. I have had this unit in service now for about 4 weeks,a nd my nitrates have dropped from 10ppm to near undetectable, and my phosphates have also gone from 10ppm to near zero.
Nice bio pellet reactor By Davidfrances on 8/18/2014Davidfrances would recommend this product to a friendThis is my second RO Biochurn reactor, the 1st was a 170INT, and the impeller doesn't spin. The 120INT, which I am reviewing here, doesn't have the spinning impeller, and does a fantastic job keeping the biomedia in suspension without any dead spots. I am in my third week of breaking this in, and adjusting the amount of biomedia, but I can't be more pleased with this item. Great value and build quality, I like this product a lot and my Nitrates and phosphates are almost zero now
