The Reef Octopus Light Reactor is a natural filter which utilizes macroalgae like Chaetomorpha to absorb and remove algae-producing nutrients from your aquarium`s water. As macro algae grows, it will consume nutrients in the water. Once you harvest the macro algae, the nutrients are then removed from your system.

Besides being an all natural approach to filtration, algae reactors also provide a safe haven for copepods and amphipods.

The Reef Octopus Light Reactor`s unique triangular waterproof LED light (IP67 Certified) strip inside the reactor maximizes light exposure for the algae with 360 degree coverage, aiding growth and nutrient consumption. The close proximity of the high-output LED strip gets as much light to the macro algae as possible and quickly grows the macro algae.

Features:

  • A unique and safe method of natural filtration
  • Greatly helps remove algae-producing nutrients from water naturally
  • Perfect safe haven for copepods and amphipods to reproduce and naturally feed the aquarium
  • Unique Triangular LED Strip for 360 degrees coverage
  • Inner LEDs provide safe high quality lighting
  • Stabilizes pH and and lowers dissolved CO2 levels
  • Low wattage and safe operation with heat sink
  • Integrated algae containment plates
  • Can be installed externally or in-sump

REVIEW
The Light Reactor from Reef Octopus works like a charm. It includes the feed pump and there is a valve to control the flow. There are shelves inside the reactor that make harvesting cheato easier.
