Fluidized media reactors are a requirement for using almost any type of loose aquarium media like carbon, GFO or biopellets. The Somatic UF-1 reactor only takes a few minutes to set up and is a great addition to any reef filtration system. 

  • HOB or In-Sump
  • Reversed Flow
  • No Dead Spots
  • Vortical Sweep
  • Fully Disassemblable
  • Includes Control Valve


Somatic's UF-1 Media Reactor has a very simple up-flow design that eliminates dead spots while increasing efficiency and contact time with your choice of media. Choose from GFO, carbon, or any other type of aquarium filtration media that needs to run in a reactor. Plumbing the reactor requires a feed pump and 1/2" soft tubing that can connect to the supplied barbed unions. The flow can be fine-tuned through the included barbed ball valve for the perfect flow, for the type of media you have in the reactor. The UF-1 can be run either as a hang on back (HOB) reactor with the included bracket or fully submerged in your sump. 


Pump Suggestions:

We suggest a pump that can push around 300 GPH, but may vary depending on your systems requirements. We have had great success with the following pumps:

  • Cobalt MJ1200
  • Sicce Syncra 1.0
