Pros

It has two rotating wheels in the top part of the reactor, probably to let the water rotate around within its bottom chamber. Does a great job of mixing the co2 into the water using the return line from my external canister filter.

This reactor is truly amazing and the best investment i have done for my planted tank. Definitely met my expectations with its co2 diffusion. What a difference it makes between this reactor and an inline diffuser.



Cons

No matter how cheap, it's not a good deal if it's unusable. Missing all three nuts to secure the hoses and the tip to connect the co2 was broken off and missing. The c02 * is too weak.

Quality


All in all i am pleased with this reactor.


I do need to cut the tube and reconnect with the fluval rubber connector.


The tubing that comes with the marineland magniflow c160 and regular 160 fits perfectly.

Competitiveness


It has worked very well with my system with a fluval 306 canister.


One single 500 at 6bps feeds enough for a 125g tank.


I got a fluval 206 dedicated for just co2.

    I purchased this product in 2020.

    However, i realized when i bought it, this is not a one size fits all reactor.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The hose size is really not relevant if the valve openings are smaller than the hose.

    Massive flow is not the answer.

    The real issue with this sera reactor is not whether it works.

    But, if it does match the size of your filtration system you are wasting your money.

    I suspect the small gasket is too old to seal properly.

    During my first ~6 hours of running the reactor, the upper wheel did not rotate .
