Positive aspects of the product (pros): Large internal capacity
Cons: Supplied instruction manual

I’ve been using this reactor for a few weeks now and I like it. It has a built in valve for easy flow control, and you can easily remove the body for routine cleaning and media replacement. This only thing that I did not like it the supplied instruction manual. It lost a LOT in the translation into English. I had to figure out how to install the supplied hose barbs on my own.

If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
