Nope, dont really think they are all THAT.
BUT, and that's a big but, if you have a sump, I think they are a good idea.
When I added Rowa and/or carbon to the tank, I basically just threw the bag/sock in there. First I had them stuck in between one if the baffles, but those r filled with filter floss now. If you have no designated place for your carbon or other media than a phos reactor is a good idea bc is forces water through the media instead of just having the media just thrown in somewhere.
If you have a canister filter or HOB
filter, than you really don't need it.
Hope this helps
