Bulk GFO - Pellet vs. HC for PhosBan Reactor

Hey guys,

I have a 2LF PhosBan reactor. I was wondering if you have any experience with it and your GFO. Does the HC seems to stay put, or is it too fine for the mesh, forcing me to go with pellet?

We recommend using our GFO and carbon in combination as the mixture gives the media more volume and you can use either HC or pellet form. If you are using the 150 reactor with GFO alone on a small tank you may not have enough media using only GFO. When using the combination in the reactor with slight surface movement you can move the reactor and notice the media appears to move in a fluid floating motion.
