Seagel + Phosban reactor 150

Alright so kind of a simple question.. first time using the media reactor and I've been using Seagel just because it made sense to me since it was using the two same media that worked out great for me in my little biocube.. Anyways so I started by using a pico 100 pump to run the reactor... I was getting very little movement and I was worried it wasn't enough flow through it... So then I upgraded to Pico200 and obviously there is a little more flow but it is still just bubbling the surface of the media.. The phosban and carbon do not seem to really tumble and "rotate" if you will inside the reactor... The top layer of carbon kind of boils over and I've noticed that the phosban kind of settings to the bottom with time. I understand one is denser than the other and people say you want it to just barely tumble in there but do I want the phosban to be moving more than it is??

So looking at 0:50 here
That looks like a good flow for the pellets but mine def do not move like that... So Do I want movement like that or just how it is running now?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.. So here's a quick video of what mine looks like
