Carbon filtering for fowlr

I have a 250g fowlr with 75g refugium protein skimmer gfo reactor. I am planning on maybe adding another puffer to my porc puffer, Should I have a carbon reactor or is it ok to just use the carbon filter socks? If it's better to use a reactor, them what one do you recommend? Thx :)

It will be fine to use it in a filter bag. I won't put it in a filter sock though. The sock clogs easily and will restrict a lot of flow.

Just keep your eye open for a used reactor on craigslist if on a budget. Any reactor will work with the carbon between two sponges. Carbon in a reactor has been super effective for me. 50-200gph through will do.

I ended up purchasing the bfr reactor and pump. Seemed like a decent deal and ratings were good. I'm excited to switch to the Rox 0.8 carbon also.
