I know, this reactor keeps on giving!

Yesterday I broke down a 30 gallon tank that was completely overgrown with moss and Java Fern. It had one of the Super Magic Elite reactors in it. I couldn' see it but I remembered it was in there.

The plants kept growing like crazy even though the CO2 had run out months ago. THAT'S how amazing this reactor is! It works even without CO2!

...Now, what would be even better - if you remove the actual reactor from the tank and the plants still grow! I think it can pull this one off, this reactor is indeed something alien... its presence in the room may make the plants grow... We shall see...

That's a link for the filter. I found one at my petco and I always figured the ones around here never have anything.

I love this little reactor and circulator combo. I've got two and they do the job wonderfully!

could i use this reactor with a DIY yeast CO2 bottle, or is this just for pressurized systems?

You can use it with DIY yeast CO2 reactor. Just make sure that the end of the tubing is not too close to the impeller of the pump. Theoretically if the impeller is very close to the tubing it can suck air/gas/liquid from the DIY bottle.

Basically you will be safe if the CO2 bubbles are released under the impeller and naturally float into the impeller.
