In Stock

Nyos took it upon themselves to rethink the reactor with their refreshing take on it, the TORQ - a high performance, two-piece, modular reactor, utilizing the DOCK and reactor BODY.

Filter media is an essential part to maintaining a reef aquarium, helping remove any pollutants, improving the water quality and health of its inhabitants. The TORQ will handle media such as activated carbon, GFO, biopellets, and zeolite.

The Body controls the Dock Pump`s flow with just a torque of the cap, adjusting flow easily and precisely without getting your hands wet. The modularity will make switching out old media for new as simple as swapping the Body, available in three sizes, 0.75, 1.0, and 2.0. The TORQ Body allows media to be flowed through optimally from every angle. In the two larger sizes, you have the option of using the separator to mix and match your media.

The Dock is a controllable pump and a base stand, taking a small footprint in your sump, required to power the TORQ reactor. It`s universal connector works with all three TORQ Body sizes, ridding the use of hoses or valves, adding to the aesthetics of your sump.


  • Control your flow with a twist of the Body
  • Double chamber allows two medias to be used simultaneously
  • No hose attachments, keeping the sump area free from clutter
  • Modular, swapping cartridges with fresh or new media


  • Volume = 2 liters
  • Diameter = 4"
  • Body Height = 16.6"
    • with Dock Pump = 21"
  • Requires TORQ Dock pump for operation (sold separately)

Pain in the butt

Pros: Tumbles media adequately

Cons: Hard to dial in flow, difficult to clean, poor design

I’ve had this system since November 2020. It’s gotten very difficult to “dial in the flow” by turning the tower on the base. In the beginning it moved easily. Now it doesn’t. So to adjust the flow, I have to remove the entire unit from the sump, and use both hands, and even that sometimes doesn’t work. I’m not happy with this purchase at all. IMO very poor design. There has to be a better reactor out there.

Lots of headaches

Pros: Cool design. Small footprint in sump.

Cons: Difficult to regulate. Difficult to fill. Difficult to remove to clean. Media comes out. Cap comes off.

The unit is pretty and the concept idea sounds amazing but in reality doesn't work well.
It's hard to fill with two different medias.
The twist to adjust flow and twist to remove unit from base to clean sounds amazing in paper but in reality it gets stuck and it's hard to adjust flow and to remove from the base.
Gfo and carbon come out of the unit leaving a mess in the sump.
The sponges don't stay in place.
The cap fits too loose and comes out creating a huge flow on the side that will not only take all the media out but also create a mess inside your cabinet.

In general it's a good idea that I hope will get some revisions and an updated version in the future. For now just avoid the headaches.
