Cannot go wrong Product Review by T ISOM (Posted on 3/1/14)

Excellent!

Comments: Looking for an excellent reactor that is far less expensive than the Gucci models? This is the way to go. Excellent uplift and uniform dispersion of media. Hangs nicely on the side of a fuge or tank. I use three of them for GFO, Carbon, and Bio-pellet. Never had a leak.

excellent as a carbon filter. Product Review by bergzy (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: can't beat the price for a fluidized reactor for running carbon. load it with rinsed carbon, get some 1/2" flexible tubing, a maxijet 1200 and you are good to go. how simple is that?

550 reactor. Product Review by AGUSTIN VILLEGAS (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

Comments: I have four Phoban Reactors two 150's & two 550's I'm using ROWAphos media in both 150 reactors in two of my fragging tanks, & running both 550's in my main tank. I have one with the ROWAphos media & one with the NPX BioPlastics, & they both work perfectly, if anyone out there is planing on getting the 550 reactor with the BioPlastics I suggest you get at least a 400GPH pump in order to ensure you have proper media tumbling. At first I had a MaxiJet 1200 for the 550 reactor with the NPX media & it was berly enough to tumble the media. So if any one out the is planing on using this product with the NPX media make sure you have or get a pump rated for at least 400GPH. Also make sure you wash the pellets very well with water before putting the reactor into service it will prevent the media from clumping which is very bad & start of by only using about 25% of recomended media for volume of water in tank then slowly add 25% about every week or two weeks (depending on bio load) it will prevent the water from clouding up & looking like milk. One last thing all my Phosphates & Nitrates are undetectable.

Phosban REactor Product Review by JOHN THAI (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: I actually own both this one by Two Little Fishies and the one made by Kent called the nautilus phos reactor and I prefer this one. The screw on lid makes changing media easier. Be careful though because if you have the pump running and try to adjust the unit or accidently bump it you can pop off one the hoses and make a mess like me.

Ages poorly Product Review by Seth (Posted on 2/26/14)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Had it for a year. Always leaked easily the fittings just get worse with time. Blew up on me the last time it's outta there!
