I finally had a half hour to do this so here it is. I installed the BRS reactor on the wifes tank today to see how well these work.First I stoped her auto water changes and the carbon gfo to get the No3's up there.I know crazy right?? Only way to find out tho.The reactor is easy to install and the kit comes with evrything except tools and a pump.BRS recomends a mag 3,I have a header installed comeing of a reef octopus hyd 5000 so alittle plumbing and it's ready to go. The reactor is the same as the gfo reactor they sell with the exception of the interior chamber is diffrent then gfo one.It is a nice acrylic chamber with plastic scrrens.They do give you six feet of 1/2 inch line,a union,ball valve and a pump fitting also.The starter kit comes with 500 ml of bio pellete's which is enough for a 75 gal tank.And they send a nice wrench also.
So here's the first No3 test to verify the starting point,Ph is @8.3 we'll be watching it to see if there's a drop
I added one third of the 500 ml of media provided and in two weeks we'll add another and do another test to see how we're comeing along.The auto water changes and the gfo and carbon are also being turned back on.Over all it's a nice kit for the money and hopefully I don't crash her tank.Here's a pic just incase I do.
