Looking for fluidized reactor. With or without pump.
Will be experimenting using this with fresh water system so media not important.
Willing to pick up

Thanks Chillin, you gave me the idea originally when you replied to the purigen thread. I have been thinking alot about it since. I am hoping to avoid full retail price but they do have the best deals in town.
The the 2 little fishies pro combo pack looks like the best deal.

Say did you ever try treating your discus with prazi while using purigen?

What type of media are you using in the reactor? I undertand they use calcium from argonite usually. that wouldnt suit freshwater though of course especially discus. I'm curious to know.
