Is there any small size pho/carbon reactor for nano use? I would like to find one use both media in different chambers but still in one unit.

Bulk Reef Supply sells a dual chamber reactor. Makes changing GAC/GFO independantly with ease.

but this one is still big instead of nano using. How do you run the carbon and phaphate on Nano? I have a 34G solana tank.

I would just drop the media bag of cabon and Phosguard in to the chamber where the water comes in to the back chamber. It would be nicer to have a HOB unit that can draw water out of that back section and run through a reactor chamber and skimmer then return the water back.

You can use the TLF reactor, which has a smaller footprint. I use to run both my GAC & GFO in this reactor. I separated the media using a few extra sponge disk. The only problem, for me, was the GAC would exhaust faster than the GFO. I now have my GFO in the TLF reactor and GAC in a media bag. Unforunately, I'm unable to hook up my BRS dual chamber reactor due to the way my tank is setup.

I got a nano reactor from Sapphire Aquatics I am using. You can probably separate the media like thin crust said with an extra sponge or just get two of them. They are just 2" x 11" tall.

Here are some pics of mine.

Good product, just pricey comparing with TLF:)
2'' is diameter? It should be fit in my AIO back chamber.
