Considering making the switch to AF Zeo/Carbon/PhosphateMinus but I am unsure of the reactor I would need to run for this. The tank is a 90 gallon mixed reef. Currently using a PhosBan 150 filled with carbon--would this be large enough to use the AF products I mentioned?

This may work, do you know how much media it holds? Many of those who used our Zeo Reactors for other systems, have simply decided to use it as a fluidized reactor. For your system, I would maybe start with 200-225ml of all three in equal amounts. This is sort of a take-away from how Debora employs the use of the media. As long as the flow will allow for the phos minus to tumble gently, without media escaping, then you should be ok. This and the use of Pro Bio S and NP Pro would combine to run ULNS. The salt also has it's benefits to compliment the Probiotic system. Cheers! :)

The capacity of the PhosBan150 is 385ml. Sounds like it's going to be a little bit small for this. :(
