So i am looking into buying a phosban reactor 150 by two little fishes... my question is what pump do you guys recommend using on this reactor .. just looking for a simple setup. I plan to run phosban and maybe carbon together.
And would it be ok to run both carbon and phosban at the same time with that pump? Also if I was to only run one media will it still be ok? I thought i read somewhere that they required different flow rates..
well, they say the GFO needs to tumble a bit or it clumps up. i didn't have this issue, but i suppose it's possible.
carbon will work with fast or slow flow, so i'd say you'll be ok. what about the volume though? what size tank is this, and how much media are you expecting to use?
Well as far as how much media to use I am not sure... I have never used a reactor before. I guess that would be my next question, how much media should I be using and how often should it be changed or washed.
I had my 2 phosban reactors both running on rio 90's they are hanging on my sump with the rio's just under them so there is not a lot head and low flow. Never had a problem. I had gfo in one and carbon in the other both were from Bulk Reef Supply. I have taken the GFO out and replaced with BioPellets.
