Next Reef SMR1 XL Bio pellet reactor???


Premium Member
I am wondering if anyone could tell me the best pump to use with this reactor and what is the best GPH flow rate????

When I had it I hooked it up to my return pump (through a manifold) and modified flow rate with a ball valve. As far as the best GPH flow, it'll depend on the media you want to run through and whether you want/need it to tumble.

I run mine off the return pump and push a decent amount of water through it. I don't know specifically how much but iirc it is something like 450gph after head losses. Maybe more.
