Spyglass reactor kit
The kit was easy to put together once I found the video. Maybe some direction on where to find that would be helpful. I got the small unit and the nano pump’s two front suction cups sit on the circular opening in the base, so they don’t auction to it. However, this doesn’t affect the performance at all.
Just built it (a you build kit) and it was high quality and easy to assemble if you have basic skills. I have not used it yet as I'm in the process of starting a new reef tank but I know it will b great based on my hands-on and it's reviews by other users.
SpyGlass you built is excellent!
The experience so far has been perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. I had a few questions before and after purchase, all were answered quickly which was much appreciated. I’d recommend to anyone to take on building this, it’s easy and an instant sense of gratification.
The best reactor!
The diy kit was extremely easy to build and it saved me a decent amount of money! I bought the small reactor for my trigger cube 20 sump and it fits perfectly in the return pump area. I have the reactor filled with rowaphos and red sea carbon and so far it has been flawless. The media never settles out like in old reactors I've had, it constantly moves and stays suspended. Come time to change out the media it is extremely easy to! Just pull up the chamber, plug the bottom, and off to the sink to change it out. The pump stays in place and you can just drop the refilled chamber back in and that's it!
Spyglass Reactor (sm)
Kit was very easy to assemble following Avast's YouTube video. Assembly didn't take long at all. Currently running biopellets at the moment. The tumble rate seems just right and not too harsh. It thought I would hear some noise from the reactor while running, but it is dead silent (If the power cord lays against the inner cylinder you may hear a small trickling sound). All in all this a great reactor.
