smiller The needle wheel impeller cuts the CO2 into tiny bubbles.

Formumsnow......why the fractioning impeller and a reactor? Is that a bubble reducer?

stevekx500 Was also thinking about keeping the HOB filter & just power the reactor w/ a spare powerhead I have layin around... Cheaper 2

creekbottom Curious... I'm considering a Cerges reactor on it's own closed loop with a mag pump. What does the fractioning impellor do for you?

Forumsnow Go with a danner mag pump with fractioning impeller on it's own closed loop going into the reactor. If you put the reactor on the canister line you will have issues with co2 as your canister starts to clog. Just my 2 cents, I am running needlewheel/ fractioning on both my tanks and am getting the best results and I have tried everything!
