    I used to use one on my Nano.
    Simple device, hang on the side of your sump, use a small pump to push water through it that you can control with the tap on the reactor.

    I think it did its job well, but I did find that the phosban clogged a lot. Not sure if that was the product I was using or the actual unit. I did find turning the reactor off at feeding time everynight would help with this.

    (actually need to put my unit in the For Sale Section as I no longer need it)

    Stick it in a bag and knead the bag every few days to mix things around. Works for me

    Works well for me aswell (when I use to use po4 remover). But I also run carbon passively.
