Reef Octopus Bio-Churn Biopellet Reactor Information

Reef Octopus NEW Biopellet reactor series takes a innovative approach of efficiently fluidizing the biopellet media without blasting the media itself with direct flow pressure. A specialty dispersant plate fluidizes the bio media into a churn style suspension. This unique motion these reactors produce allow for much greater suspension of the media within its cyclone “churn” style motion. The BioChurn Reactors come in Four styles an in-sump, external, external/recirculating and a commercial line for large aquatic environments. For the ultimate control of PO4 & NO3 look no further than the Reef Octopus BioChurn.

The Reef Octopus Hang on Back (HOB) BioChurn Reactor comes with an Aquatrance pump that feeds the reactor as well as drives the reactor’s churn wheel. These models are ideal for those that want a simple reactor that is easy to use and maintain. The cascading design allow for greater surface area for bacteria to colonize while the delicate churn motion of the pellets allow for extended contact time between the nutrient rich aquarium water and the biopellet media. HOB bracket included.

BioChurn-90HOB INT can be hung on the inside of your aquarium or sump, or sit inside your sump.

  • Capacity: 400mL Max.

Comments: So far so good. It is pretty easy to get everything going. The pellets really churn good. It doesn't make a lot of noise and it doesn't feel cheap. The design makes it super easy to unscrew the screw at the top and just drop in more pellets. It's too early to see if it's helped yet. The only con(s) I see so far is that the instructions were not good at all and the sample bio pellets were not packed well and spilled all over the box. Kind of a pain to pick them all up and get them out of the cardboard box crevices.

Comments: I got this to replace my old bio-pellet reactor. Biggest issue I always had was a pump strong enough to moved them around. I got this installed in my system, and so far so good. I'm liking the movement of the bio-pellets. Only complaint I have is the bio-pellets that came with it. The container was opened, so the bio-pellets were everywhere in the box. You could even hear them move around when you picked up the box (think about a box of legos).
