CPR Bak 2 or 2r?

Just wondering if the difference in the bio media in the bak pak would make a difference on a reef tank, with the increase in nitrates. Also would like to know if anyone has had problems with microbubbles in the non bio media version.

I have the BakPak II with the bale and have no issues with nitrates or bubbles... Great skimmer, set it and forget it for the most part.

What size tank?

Cheers
Steve

Not bad skimmers although i believe the Aqua-c remora is better by far. They do leak micro bubbles for about the first month or so till they slime up!


Thanks,

Darin

steve-s its a 10 gallon nano. Im not buying a bak pak just going to diy based on the design of a cpr.

Darin, ya i read a comparasin between the cpr and the aquac. I guess the new spray induction works really well.

I personally have enjoyed owning my Aqua-C Remora as well It does a sweet job... I have not personally owned anything else but after seeing the performance first hand with aqua c I dont think I want anything else..
