I just got my Two Little Fishes reactor yesterday and hooked it up. I got a PICO 90gph pump for it and hung it on the side of my sump.

? for those who have one, the media is supposed to stay still, not mix around in the chamber, correct?

In the 8 hours that it ran, it has remarkably cleared up my cloudiness that I reported on this site a couple of days ago.

I also got my Turbo Twist 36w UV sterilizer in, which I'll be installing tonight. I'll post results on that bad larry as soon as I can.

it is supposed to lightly tumble. Not real intense due to the fact that it can be crushed to powder and be pumped into your tank.

Well mine is just sitting in the reactor, not moving at all. Maybe I got a pump too small? It's not tumbling or moving, just sitting on the bottom of the reactor. Of course I do have 150 grams in there. It says to use 50grams per 50g of water, so I think that's right. But if it's meant to be at a low tumble, then I guess I'll have to get a bigger pump.

people have reported that the phosban will become solid if there is not enough flow.

Ok, great picture. Mine's definately not turning like that. But fear not, I've got a Maxi-jet 900 (230gph) that I can stick on there with the ball valve that came with the reactor and adjust the flow that way.
