Finally a solution for removing and controlling Nitrates, Phosphates, nuisance algae with a twist of your wrist! With our newest full control 3-way re-circulating flow system you can speed up or slow down the effluent and target your desired amount of Nitrates, phosphates you want to remove all while not affecting the tumbling speed of the bio-pellets in the reaction chamber. You can remove all or leave trace amounts to prevent over stripping as you wish. There are many other benefits too that is progressively changing the way we all keep and maintain Marine fish and Reef aquariums. Also works great for GFO or Activated Carbon. A fine filter media bag is recommended for GFO or activated carbon use.

*Improved plumbing that is completely water tight assembled the moment you receive it so that it is ready to go the moment you take it out of the box.

* True All-In-One design, where the pump is already built inside of the Bio reactor in the bottom chamber. This feature saves A LOT more space and ease of use the moment you get it. The intake is at the bottom and the outtake is from the top; which allows for the most efficient uni-direction flow. External units use twice the amount of space.

* Cell-Cast cone bodies are made of liquid-mold-casted Acrylic into solid seamless tubes that are incredibly durable

* Advanced True Conic design is what makes CAD`s unique "Rhythmic Tumbling Motion" that moves every pellet evenly and prevents clumping. Every pellet churns, swirls around and moves throughout the entire reactor (from top to bottom). Soft yet high flow movement with minimal agitation perfect for the Bio-pellets to interact with each other.

* Self-priming and designed to be ready to use right out of the box and comes with all the pump, fittings, plumbing, union etc... all comes standard.

*Space saving design and energy efficient. No need for an external pump that will take up more space and wasted pump pressure.

* Completely disassembles easily for maintenance.

* Compatible with a large variety of Tapered edged Bio-pellets, GFO or Activated Carbon.

***Avoid use of “perfectly rounded” bio-pellets as they will no properly tumble. Use tapered-edge, oblong, or other non-rounded bio-pellets for best results.***

DANGER! DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!

REVIEW
Absolutely a piece of crap. It came with the crappy CAD Lights tank I bought. Nothing but issues from day one. Constant clogs caused me to have to do a few DIY rigs. Then pump burned out. Because the pump is enclosed, your options to replace it are VERRRRY limited!! (read: it's made to work wi...Read More

REVIEW
I got a BR-1 a couple of weeks ago. The body looks nice but I had to tack down the bottom diffuser plate with some crazy glue. I assembled it and found one long pvc pipe to be about 1/2" short. It moved the all-in-one pellets a little. I have modified it by switching to return piping from ...Read More

Mediocre Performance for the $

REVIEW
I had read reviews stating the parts were cheap, and knew that before buying. The plumbing is the cheapest part. They cut pieces of PVC are not long enough to glue, so you press fit (barely), and hope. I had this up and running for 5 days. The first day, the pellets tumbled great. Day 2, not tu...Read More

REVIEW
Even after soaking the pellets for 2days they would still rise to the top and just hang out up top.. So I tried again soaking them in salt water. They faired much better after soaking them in salt Walter. Density? Maybe. Somehow water weeping through the top via the plastic screws even though they...Read More
