    Last post died out and i was recommended to get a BRS dual reactor instead of a hob filter new to all this saltwater stuff.

    I would suggest using a canister for mechanical and a reactor for chemical.

    There are sponges in the reactor so yes they will act as mechanical fitration.It is important to clean them regularly.
