    Hi guys

    I would like to run the following off 1 pump and need some advice.

    1. Biopellt Reactor (ReefOcto BR - 70)
    2 Skimz FM 100 - Carbon
    3 Not sure which reactor yet but PO4 remover

    I was thinking using something like Eheim compact 3000 and valves to throttle each reactor to achieve correct flow rates

    Any thoughts ?

    I would suggest an OR2500 - 3500 plumbed to a manifold with gate valves for pressure dispersal to each unit.. majarity of the flow would be needed for the bio pellet reactor to achieve the correct tubble rate..

    mmmm .... Was confused by the thread title ... but now makes more sense .... Got very worried there especially after I seen what some school children were doing in the Cape Town area with a compressor pump;) Since the pellet reactor would need more flow why not do a t-piece then on the one split do another t-piece .... You would then have like 2 quarter the power to the pellet and a quarter each for the other 2 reactors
