    How do you setup this reactor in youre sump?.. It seems easy but I just want to make sure.. Do you put the end with the maxi jet pump in your skimmer section of the sump? and the other line in the return section of your sump? Im curious thanks!

    It doesn't really matter, setting it up the way you have described is fine. In my sump, the skimmer and the return are in the same section, both the intake and the output of my reactor are in that chamber

    The only thing I would be concerned about is to put the suction where it will not get air bubbles.

    I drive mine off the pump that feeds the refugium and other reactors. In my case that is my middle sump chamber. Then it dumps back into the last chamber where my tank feed pump lives.

    sure.. but at least put them on opposite sides... some distance away from each other.. maybe the exhaust nearest to the flow to the main pump.
