add another valve before the tee right after the reactor.. other wise you will back flush the reactor when filling tghe tank ..

I'm in the process of designing the same system for my 135.

Use unions as much as possbile (like on the reactor), and I also reccomend a loop bypass with valving around the reactor (this will give you the option of changing it around, adding other stuff, etc).

The location of the water change junction is interesting... I gather you are intending to use your filter pump to help flush the tank, but it looks like you'd be pumping nice, freash, clean water out, rather than the dirty tank water... Why not put the drain valve on one of the outflow pipes? Maybe even plumb a separate, dedicated pipe into the tank with a hose fitting attached...
