I'm currently setting up a 58gal plant tank and would like to run a AB Reactor 1000. I saw that the manufacture recomends a flow rate of 250gph. Can I run a lower flow rate thru this? If so, what flow rate should I be running on a 58? I was thinking around 175gph.

Thanks

Sorry I missed your post earier. I would say you could run as low as 100G an hour through it and still get satisfactory results in your size of tank. Remember though this is not scientific data, this is just my opinion. Don;t buy a small pump and get mad at me if it don't work!
