Yeah I think I'll just purchase the reactor but here in my area is around $60-75 bucks for a phosban 150. Gotta check my lfs and see if they have the reactor.

BRS for a reactor, I run a Phosban reactor the GFO will work a lot better in a reactor. When you run it in a reactor the water is forced through it and is more effective. When the GFO is in a bag water will travel the path of least resistance and will around it rather than through it. I would aslo suggest there HC GFO. I had an issue with Cyano and started running some of the gfo changed it out every 2 weeks and each time i added a little more GFO till I was running twice the recommended amount once PO4 came down cyano was gone I started using less and less.

Make sure if using GFO in a reactor you start at the least amount and work your way up. When I first ran mine I used the amount recommended and had my pump running full force. It killed some of my SPS corals and all my cheoto. My LFS told me I went from high phosphates to 0 too quick and SPS corals are sensitive to sudden changes. Everything else in my tank was fine.
