CO2 Reactors

Hi All

Is anyone out there familiar with CO2 Reactors, I'm looking for a reactor to go in between the XP3 Canister filter and the return hose to the aquarium.
Such as the one in this link.

It should work fine you can install it that way but it would be better to install in between the XP3 and the Output hose also what size tank will you be using this on ?

That is where I meant. My question is, is this the best reactor? are there less expensive ones? are there better ones?

I've got a 72 gal bowfront with 2 anubias, large java on a log, 1/3 of the tank is covered with grass like plant and a few other plants that I don't know the name of, 8 meium sized angels and 2 dozen neon tetras, 3 SAE's

Cheers
Scott

I got two of those on my 150G tank, they work fantastic.
You can find this at a better price though.
