Great Value Product Review by SHANE (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: Bought this for my refugium and connected it to a tam rio 600 that I have already connected to my overflow for suction that is located in my refugium as well. Up until now, the main outlet for water on the rio has just been blowing water freely so I figured I would give this device a shot and see how it worked with the rio. I filled the chamber up with some media, placed in refugium, hooked it up to the rio and it is doing a great job as an additional media filtration source. Have not experienced any of the problems that some others have reported below. Now my rio works double duty which I like :). Good product.

Perfect solution Product Review by JOHN EDWARDS (Posted on 1/28/10)

Comments: Plus's:
**Compact design doesn't get knocked around when you're fiddling in the sump.
**Large cross section of exposure to the media, well beyond most reactor designs.
**Very easy removal of media container for easy servicing and media change out
**Almost no migration of GFO media such at higher flow rates
**IMO every sump should have one of these and run Granular Ferric Oxide to remove phosphates and keep their tank very happy even with medium/heavy feeding schedule.

Very Nice~ Product Review by KENNETH M FAGIN (Posted on 10/21/09)

Comments: This is a nice, compact unit that loads easily and takes up little space in the sump. I saw some of the other reviews about blow-through, but I'm not sure why they say that. I believe Magnavore's website does note that the 300 micron screens will eventually wear out under regular, aggressive use with the filter media unconstrained inside the chamber, but hey! there are many costs in this hobby. Replacement screens are available. I run mine with a MiniJet 606 and am pleased with the performance. (By the way, I spoke with someone at Magnavore directly about media use, and he opened my eyes to a much more appropriate way to use their Pura NitrateLock (in terms of duration/frequency and regeneration of the media. Check out their website for far better information than is provided on the cannister label.)

A MUST FOR EVERY SUMP Product Review by JOHN DELLAMANNA (Posted on 6/4/08)

Comments: This little guy is awesome. It takes up no room, has multiple compartments for different media mixes. 1/2" tubing connects to the reactor but the little pump you will purchase to power the reactor does not take 1/2", nor does it come with fittings for a secure seal. Tired of my non-glue nmake-shift solutions, I went to Home Depot and purchased the next larger size hose. It fit snugly.

Simplicity Product Review by CRAIG (Posted on 4/21/08)

Comments: I have been trying to rid my 240 gallon reef tank of green algae and cyanobacter for more than a year. I have replaced my reverse osmosis unit with a RO/deionizer unit, made frequent water changes, and still have not seen any improvement. I read that phosphate can leach out of reef rocks. After reading articles at MarineDepot.com and other websites, I decided to buy the Magnavore Simplicity Chemical Reactor. I liked its' ability to use various filtration media and ease of use. Simplicity truly is its' middle name. I unpacked it, placed one screen at the bottom of the canister, filled it with ROWAphos absorbing media, placed the upper screen, screwed on the top and placed it into my sump. I connected it to an Eheim compact 600 powerhead with 1/2" vinyl tubing and was filtering water within 5 minutes of opening the box. It has been almost two weeks in use now and I am starting to see improvement in the algae growth.

I have been extremely pleased with this purchase, as I have been with everything else that I bought at MarineDepot.com
