Q
Does this go in the sump? I read one review where the person hung it on the aquarium.
My question was simple and it all fit in the first box.

This item can be placed pretty much anywhere in your system. It is suitable for either submersed or external operation and can easily be hung off the side of your tank or submersed into any one of your sump chambers it will fit into.

REVIEW
The reactor, for the money, is good. The only complaint I have are the rubber 90 degree elbows. They seem like they could eventually crack and cause leaks. I ran my tubing right to the barbs without the rubber elbows. The reactor kit is complete with zip ties, hose clamp, and a valve to adjust fl...Read More

Nice Reactor

REVIEW
This is a very simple and easy reactor to set-up and use. I have not had a problem with the unit in any way. Reactor works well and no channeling seen. Noticed a drop in algae growing on the side of the tank after reactor was put into service. For an inexpensive purchase compared to some of the more...Read More
