Media Reactor for JBJ 28 Gallon Question


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I currently have a JBJ 28 Gallon reef aquarium that has been up and running for about 3 months now. I currently only have one torch coral and one true percula clown (i am taking it slow).


Current Water Parameters


Temp 79 F

PH 8.1

Ammonia 0ppm

Nitrite 0ppm

Nitrate 5ppm


I can't seem to get the nitrates below 5ppm. I would like to add a media reactor. Anyone have any experiance with adding a media reactor to this tank? I am looking to add it to the cabinet of the stand using an external pump.

brs or 2 little fish reactors would work nicely.


for most AIO tanks, you might need to notch the hood for the hoses to pass in and out of.

Make sure to get a second opinion on the NO3 levels. API and some other test kits are notoriously inaccurate. I wouldn't make any scientific conclusion based on one if that's what you are using.


Secondly, what's your water change schedule, and are you having algae problems?


5ppm is still low enough that you can grow most coral, and certainly wont have any problem with a torch or LPS.
