Update Review by jeffrey
Product Rating:
Hello everyone , this is an update on the bio churn 150 . Don't buy one of these !! I have had it set up now for 9 months and finally it's doing what it is supposed to do . But it is very hard to regulate , there's always spots where the pellets clump up and when you have to add pellets it's hard to get it churning again and don't even have the capacity maxed out !!! The quality of the build is very good as with other reef octopus products . But I wish I could return this one for one that has the bio churn wheel , perhaps it works better ?

Nice reactor (BUT) Review by jeffrey
Product Rating:
just received the 150R , got it all hooked up , I hard plumed the feed pump with more unions and a ball valve . My pluming didn't leak a drop , but when I started up the aquatrance 1800 recirculation pump it leaked badly around the impeller housing . I took it off and sealed the housing with automotive gasket sealer and now its working fine , although it seems to vibrate more then it should !! For 500 bucks you would think that you would get a pump that doesn't leak !!!! And FYI I read a review on another site and someone else had the same issue with that pump . You can bet I will be giving aquacave a call on Monday !! All in all though the reactor is very high quality and I am sure its going to work great when it cycles . I am giving it 3 stars because the pump issue is very disappointing !! I expected something better from Reef Octopus !!
