The Reef Octopus in-sump BioChurn Reactors come 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.
The ultimate in bio-pellet reactors, the BioChurn recirculating models provide the most control over your Biopellet solid carbon dosing. AquaTrance recirculation pumps power the BioChurn reactors and features independent flow valves so the user can independently control the flow of media within the reactor. The “Power Churn” design easily fluidizes large amounts of biopellet media without blasting it with outrageous flow needed by many other reacots to keep the media moving without clumping which is a common with other Biopellet reactors on the market.
