Media reactors for reef aquarium use are being employed more and more frequently and it’s such a pleasure to see one of our own sponsors showing this piece a kit a little bit of special attention. We spied the Deluxe black carbon and GFO reactor from Bulk Reef Supply at Fragstock this past weekend and we immediately noticed that this was no run of the mill media reactor. The sleek canister aside, the black quick disconnect fittings on the reactor and the included assortment of angled and valve fittings will make this media reactor a breeze to set up and maintain. It may be subtle but the coup-de-gras might have been a pressure release valve in the head of the canister unit which allows the user to break the suction and clear the water from all the lines before servicing the reactor, thus reducing the potential for spills. The quick disconnect coupling is ideal for easily mating up the BRS reactos with a Maxi Jet water pump so all in all, this media reactor really lives up to the Deluxe name. If you are in the market for a media reactor for your reef tank, with all the included features, fittings and tubing, for $45 you couldn’t do much better than the BRS deluxe media reactor.
