what size pump for a phosban reactor 150 in a 90g?

I have a 30g sump also. Not sure what size pump to get for the reactor. Its a phosban 150. What should I get and any set up suggestions?

A MJ1200 is the standard for a Phosban 150 just hang it on the side of the sump and have the return near your sump pump.

i have a 120 gallon tank. for my system i use 1 pump to feed the return, my skimmer, GFO reactor, and a GAC reactor. its the marineland 700gph. i always suggest trying to run fewer pumps, rather than buying more. what pump are you using for your return right now? it might be possible to tee off it and plumb it to the reactor.

Not a bad idea...I have a Mag 12.

I'd use a MJ1200 if you use a ball valve, otherwise a 400 or 600 depending on length of tubing.
