All Lifegard Turbo Reactors are engineered to the highest quality and efficiency to promote the growth of Nitrate and Phosphate reducing bacteria and Enzymes. They name TURBO is due to a unique high flow spinning action to provide the highest water quality in a short time. This is not your average media reactors with a lazy flow through. The internal mechanism provides a unique anti-clumping spiral flow that maximizes the media contact time as well as greater flow through the media. Resulting in an accelerated chemical and biological filtration to quickly remove nitrates, Phosphates, Slime Algae and other nuisance algae for a marine or freshwater aquarium.
Our design allows the ease of maintenance. Whether you want to change, add or mix media, simply unscrew the plastic screws on the top to remove the top cover and it opens up for full access. Turbo Reactors are designed to run Bio-pellets of ALL shapes and sizes, GFO, Carbon etc. It comes with diffuser plates and 2 pieces of foam for GFO and other fine filter media.
Anti-clumping design: utilizing a full distribution plate, our reactors give unmatched bio-pellet tumbling and flow distribution. Using a fully perforated specially patterned distribution and return plate, our reactors are high speed yet, gentle as the water comes up in a “vortex” style stream. The “vortex” style stream causes excess agitation to the Bio-pellets and other media hence increasing the media efficiency.
All Turbo reactors are built on the smallest possible footprint while providing the maximum efficiency and flow. The Nano reactor is only 2.15″ wide, this little reactor packs a good punch in effectively controlling and removing your Nitrates, Phosphates, slime algae and other nuisance algae. It can hold a up to 250ML of bio-pellets giving you an aquarium capacity of 10 – 75 Gallons (depending on your bio-load). Yet it can still fit into an aquarium as small as our 5G, 7G Nano aquarium systems.
BIO PALLETS are specially formulated media designed to promote the growth of Nitrate and Phosphate reducing bacteria and associated Enzymes. They are suitable for all types of Marine and Freshwater Aquaria. Bio Pellets work by encouraging the growth of bacteria and enzymes on their surface. The process growing bacteria and enzymes on the Bio Pellets takes time. It depends on how established is the aquarium. Patience is necessary. Shutting down the Reactor will reduce or even destroy the Nitrifying bacteria and enzymes. Over time the Bio Pallets may reduce in size or even disappear. It is recommended to add new Bio Pallets once this is noticed.
