which one of these two co2 reactors should I choose?

Hey guys, I have a 20 long gallons and still deciding about co2 reactor. What do you think is the best in term of noise level and efficient?





I have known that Mix max is very efficiency and quite quiet. But there is still some problem in the first place when setting it up. The Multi co2 reactor look quite like Rex reactor and I like the way they place two intake and outtake tube far away, easier for my tank to set it up. I have a 20 gallon AIO tank so the room is kinda small. I'm using powerhead anyway.



Please help me choose one. Thank you

Have you thought about making your own? It would probably be cheaper. A cerge style reactor is simple to make and cost me around 30 bucks.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

I don't believe their as effective as a cerge's reactor but for 20 bucks cheap enough not to matter.
