Just hooked up my first equipment add on: A kent phos reactor.
In the manual it states that the media should be moving around in the upwelling water. I had it filled about halfway up....no movement. I kept removing media 'till I was where you see in the pic, only about an inch of media and very little movement. Im using a maxijet 1200 which is 175 gph above what is recommended. Is this too little media? Can I fill it up with more phosban?
Believe it or not from the photo, the water is moving in the reactor...I checked the exhaust tube and the stream coming out is close to what the maxi jet puts out unimpeaded.

If you have water coming out the end it is working, i believe you want them at least 3/4 full to really do their job. Make sure you have the water going in to the center port and coming out from the port on the side........
