    Hey guys,
    Being so far away from any LFS doesn't give me a chance to actually see a lot of the latest aquarium odds and ends!!
    What I would like to know is a possible list of media that would work in reactors and preferably coarse stuff!
    For instance I have carbon in a stocking and I would like to run it in a reactor but it is too fine!
    Also looking for a coarse phos media and would like to get some suggestions what else would run well in reactors.

    Excuse my ignorance, but when you say reactors, do you mean fluidised reactors or the ones where the media doesn't tumble...?

    Otherwise which sponsor could I talk too that does a large range of media that would help?
    Like I said I am nowhere near an LFS!!
    But I am coming to the AquariumExpo2012, maybe I can get a range of stuff there??:whistling:
