Reactor???

I have been running my reef tank for a year now and want to look into getting a reactor now. Was wondering what is a good brand and what water pump I'll need to go with it? Any info would be great.

I have a phosban reactor, you can use most types of media in it. What size is your tank?

You can get the 150mod reactor. There affordable and work really good. You want an adjustable pump and it also comes with a ball valve. I'm 500% satisfied with mine. And I got it for 80 bucks.

Ok. With phosphate media make sure that the media is slowly moving and not flying around, if it's going to fast you won't have enough contact time and your media will grind against eachother. Slow and steady wins the race
