    I have two TLF Phosban 150 Reactors for sale. Each is $20. They both work perfectly. I can include the pump each ran on for an extra $10. One ran on a Maxijet pump and the other ran on a Hydor Koralia Pico pump. Both pumps work fine and are compatible with the reactors. So $30 for each reactor...

    What do you guys think about this idea: I have a biocube 14 and it has been up and running for a little over 6 weeks now. I really would like to add a media reactor but as most of you know it can be a pain in such a small tank due to the heat production of the added submersible pump. So I was...

    Just a quick question. I couldn't remember how much media to use in my phosban reactor so just trying to remember. I currently use the brown granule and started without just a little so the tank got used to it. Last week i added a lot more so you can see the stuff move but not a lot. This...

    So I'm in a heated battle with green hair algae, the evil fast growing monster that it is. I'm a little tired of digging my rock out of the aquarium to brush it with a toothbrush, just to have it all grow back within 3 days. Which means I wasted countless hours of my time performing such a task...

    Hi everyone, I know this idea is crazy but can you please tell me if it would work: 1) Juwel bioflow 3.0 filter (600L/H) outlet pump connected to; 2) Resun mini 200 chiller (no pump and requires >500L/H) connected to; 3) Deltec MCE300 external protein skimmer (uses its own internal pump)...

    Right now I have a 30 gallon tank and my phosphates are pretty high and I'm looking to get a phosban reactor and I can buy one from someone for cheap but it's a phosban 550, and my question is, is the phosban 550 too big for my 39 gallon tank? Or would that be okay? I plan on moving everything...

    Added Phosban about 6 days ago and pretty sure it is working. Almost all the green algae that was growing has now become clear, glass like strands flowing in the breeze. I am going to switch out the Phosban in about a week and a half, but what is the next step on getting rid of this ugly. What...

    Could I put phosban in a filter sock inside a hob filter for my reef tank? Would that work rather then a reactor or just in my sump?
  10. General Reef Discussion
    Hi all. Recently got a phosban reactor from a buddy who is no longer into the hobby. I have a 29 gallon biocube with a media rack in the second chamber running filter floss, bagged purigen and chemipure elite. If I were to hook up the reactor and run something like phosban, would it be too...

    I have 2 reactors from tlf can i daisy chain the carbon and the rowaphos or should i have a seperate pump for each?

    Hi, I am looking for a Phosban reactors but I don't know which brand are good and reasonable price and easy to use. I have a 55gal tank with 30gal sump. Please help me find one. Thanks

    QUESTION.... I want to get Phosban in a media bag ... I have a BONE STOCK biocube 29 can i put a media bag in C3 with the pump and will it be effective? I don't understand the reactor thing, well i understand but it seems too much for a 29g tank whats everyone's opinion?

    So I'm looking at getting a carbon,pearls and phosban reactor of some sort. Which is not a big deal except for the fact I'm looking for one that will handle my future tank which wil have a total of around 480+ gallons. Well the problem is most of those are really pricey. So I've been looking...

    Has anybody had one of those split on them. The Hose on the input side split right on the seam, and luckily I was home today, only had a couple gallons blow out on the floor and in my cabinet, Replaced that and put in inside my sump just in case it happenes again. Might have to do a...

    So I installed a TLF 150 phosban reactor with the pellets to help lower nitrates in my system from feedings and what not. Can someone tell me if in my video I recorded, is it adjusted correctly? I haven't really seen many videos of it adjusted to run and I know that I've read it should appear...

    So I have finally found the time to go throu everything in my tank base to get more organized down there with wires and pumps and etc... What I'm getting at is I have a phosban reactor and I knew this but didn't really knew how it worked so I YouTube it ....and well come to find out mine is not...

    Thinking about picking one up to help with some phosphate issues, anyone use em and like them?
  19. General Reef Discussion
    Could I use an old HOB filter for phosban media? If I removed the carbon from the bag and replace with phosban media, or should I run both carbon and phosban in the bag? How often should I use the phosban or carbon (if any)? Or could I put the phosban in yhe lower chamber of my HOB skimmer where...

    I just wanted to get some thoughts on adding a GFO reactor. Right now my phosphate level is undetectable with a chemical test kit. This is expected as the system is fairly new/young. I know over time phosphate will be introduced and likely absorbed by my rock and sand. Is my thinking correct...
