Thanks. You got the stuff on my next order list. LOL I had them in the shopping cart but just couldn't do it. hehe Congrats on getting a good deal.

They also give away some random item each week too. I may be wrong but I think it's a nitrate bio pellet reactor this week. That'd be nice to have.

Am looking at those also. Which one did you get? I'm kinda lost a little bit on which one would work for me.

Depends on what you wanna run. carbon or gfo? Do you have a phosphate issue at all? Are do you just wanna run carbon like I do?

Algae issue. So was looking to run gfo. No clue if phosphate issue, need to buy a test for it. The test is in my cart at BRS.

Ah I see. I would probably get the reactor and get both carbon and gfo, you know youre gonna wanna run one or the other at some point.

Plus its a nice discount on the reactors, really wish I had the money to pick one up now. Have to wait for BRS to credit back the charge card I used for my lucky win.

I have carbon in my fluval so I wasn't planning on getting the carbon. I was gonna just get gfo. They have more than one reactor, looking at the sizes, they could fit next to my fluval but I don't know about the hoses and and which one would work for and reach my tank.

I really wanted a magnesium test too. I looked at the Red Sea and the Elos so far, looking at the rest now.

Elos is a well regarded brand as well as salifert. A bit snooty for me but if you're trying to get to free shipping amt or something it's worth it I think.

Nope not worried bout getting to free shipping lol, just wanna get the tests I need.

Well I'm halfway there now LOL, and if I get a reactor then I will be there. But I've no clue which one to get.

watch the little videos. The double one they say actually ahs a better chance to clog . I was gonna go with the single regular one with an MJ1200.
