Ultra Reef has an innovative new design for a media reactor with an optional conversion kit to transform into a macroalgae filter/reactor. The design and craftsmanship of Ultra Reef aquarium equipment is uniquely Italian and it shows in all of their products from the protein skimmers and calcium reactors down to the new media reactors too.
Media reactors come in so many shapes, styles and designs but most of them take the form of a basic tube with inlets and outlets. The Ultra Reef reactors however only have one inlet in the base, and then overflow from the top so they are only intended for in-sump use.
A flange connection in the base of the Ultra Reef reactors allows them to be disconnected from the feed pump inlet with a quick, simple twist, allowing users to easily service the media chamber to replace media. A very basic conversion kit will allow the media reactor to transform into a macroalgae filter by simply inserting a hollow tube and series of perforated ledges.
Ultra Reef will not supply a light source to illuminate the reactor from within like a Pax Bellum filter, but the isolated inner tube will allow retailers or distributor to bundle a basic LED light bar, or end users could pick these up and install it on their own. The simplified and practical design of the new Ultra Reef media reactors actually translates into very few parts and a minimal amount of labor required for their construction, so these should cost under $200 when they ship to their respective markets worldwide.
