The aquarium reactor is a highly useful piece of equipment in the aquarium hobby. This is how to build one!!
There are many types of reactors, including; carbon reactors, phosphate reactors, bio-pellet reactors, nitrate reactors, GFO reactors, calcium reactors and many more.

What is this for?
0:31 What media must be used to be nitrAte reactor ?!
Quick question: I'm running an inline UV light to help with algae. Would the light kill the denitrate bacteria I'm trying to grow using this reactor???
This is what made him popular and got me into the hobby. Too bad he cannot do these diy stuff anymore cause hes into more expensive and serious stuff now

CAN YOU HOOK IT UP TO A CANISTER FILTER
Youre so pleasant
Brilliant and simple engineering. Will be doing this. You saved me about 100$!. Thank you. Keep.putting out more content.
Is this works for simple calcium reactor?
Is it possible to miniaturize this to use with a 5 gal nano planted aquarium? I'm having issues with my glass bell diffusers clogging or simply not producing a fine enough bubble to defuse into the water before it breaks the surface. I did try to attach my CO2 line out of my DIY reactor into my outline for my filter return, and… it 'sorta' works but again, I'm seeing too many bubbles going right on up to the surface just outside of the filter return. I have a Fluval V with a modified filter system to cope with some of the 'fun' issues with the tanks design.
I still do not understand the usenof this. No co2 so only water runing to me this is like a small version of a cannister filter
Your videos are always great. I hope I can order your book soon! Michael.
3:23 Is it true that on August tenth, twenty fourteen, the defendant stated: “I then inserted a long piece of pipe into that cupling.”?
What did you do to your arm? Street fighting? Slittin throats? Such a badass!!!
Could something like this be run inline on a canister filter return line?
