Have you considered building the reactors with regular PVC pipes from Home Depot/Lowes instead of the transparent ones which are considerably more expensive? It costs ~$15 to build the first one. Supplemental ones are less than $5 a piece since you've already bought the PVC Primer/Glue, several feet of PVC pipes, BIO balls, threads, silicone, hack saw, etc. Fittings are about 0.30 a piece, and barbs are about $2 a pop.

As far as I know, these reactors do not clog as the barb diameters are fairly wide and any large debris would be caught by the filter intake and filter IME. Therefore, there's no need for clear PVC pipes unless you enjoy watching it in action. :D
