Does the reactor you bought able to control the flow out of the reactor? If not you will have to find the sweet spot in the number of pellets you put in. I found this harder to do so I bought a different reactor.

Reef Octopus 6

I noticed this has metric plumbing parts... Wha? I haven't looked for or seen them at HD. Does anyone have this model? Anyone have any opinions on this for my 75g + 40sump?

i have it on my 72 with 20 gallon sump and it works very well. i don't think you need to worry about metric parts. what would you need to plumb with it?

I don't know much about skimmers but I've been trying to read. Does it have more PVC parts than shown for the water output? That's what I was thinking it would need. Looks like it just sprays out of a T in the photo. Thanks for replying.

nope everything you see is all you need. just sit it in your sump and adjust the water level. i have mine in about 8 inches of water. and yes the skimmed water just flows out of the T back into your sump.


here is a pic of it sitting in my sump. just doesn't have the collection cup on it at the moment

Nice... and it's doing well I assume? or would you have gone with something else now that it's running?

yep i would buy it again. i've had no problems so far and it works great. i thought it wasn't working right one time but it turned out my filter sock had got sucked up against the pump intake.

The reactor I am getting has a ball valve on it so I can adjust the flow til I hit the cherry spot.
