You will need 1.5ltrs of stones with a flowrate of 400-600lph. So you would need the 120

Tim you are 5x2x2, same as me no? I only use 1 litre of stones. I worked my volume out 'after' displacement. I think that's what they advised me to do on the zeovit forum.


I got a second hand grotech reactor for 50 quid, i'm running a maxi jet 500 on it.
