    Hi guys

    I have a massive new reactor and was wondering what you would run through a reactor?

    Carbon/biopellets/phosguard whatever.

    Also keeping economy in mind.....

    for example I don't think pellet reactors can be suitable for carbon as gte pellets need to tumble and the carbon doesn't
