    What are you guys running? Do you have a video? What's your flow look like? Do the pellets tumble?

    I've used ecoBAK in several reactors. Some have worked better than others... Let's see yours.

    yes those kind of reactor (RO/Di housing) don't really work well...

    I'd expect we will see people using Reef Octopus, NextReef, Aquamaxx, Avast, TLF and others...

    I've found that the MaxiJet 1200 is a great match for 1 liter of ecoBAK.

    You need to run around 250ml of ecoBAK and a relatively small reactor. There are several out there and the smallest Reef Octopus model is highly recommended by users. Try it with a MJ900 and if it's a bit much, you can valve back the output.
