The Reef Octopus Light Reactor allows you to grow algae within a contained system while providing full control of the flow rate through the reactor. Comes with Aquatrance feed pump.
TheReef Octopus Light Reactoris a natural filter which utilizes macroalgae like Chaetomorpha to absorb and remove algae-producing nutrients from your aquarium's water. As macro algae grows, it will consume nutrients in the water. Once you harvest the macro algae, the nutrients are then removed from your system.
Besides being a all natural approach to filtration, Algae reactors also provide a safe haven for copepods and Anphipods.
TheReef Octopus Light Reactor'sunique triangular waterproof LED light (IP67 Certified) strip inside the reactor maximizes light exposure for the algae with 360 degree coverage, aiding growth and nutrient consumption. The close proximity of the high-output LED strip gets as much light to the macro algae as possible and quickly grows the macro algae.
