Oh, cool. I have read that GFO will crumble if it tumbles too much. I think that's why they have that limitation in the instructions. Looks like the same reactor I have. Is it the two little fishies phosban reactor?

Yeah. I filled up the media up until "two li" which is about 6" if you understand what I mean lol. I'll throttle back the pump in that case. I just don't like the fact that it will decrease the life of the pump.

Actually, throttling will not hurt the pump.

One of those tidbits of information I picked up from Mr X

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yep, choking the pump back at the exhaust port is perfectly fine for a pump. Just don't starve it for water at the intake port.
