    Yes you can. Reactors are designed to hang from either a sump or tank.

    Hello,

    Thank You for making these wonderful Videos,

    But I would to know if red mangroves help reduce the amount of phosphate which can prevent cyano bacteria.

    Well said. This was stated in the video itself and you are right.

    Simply put: when you read 0 for any parameter in your system, it doesn’t mean there is 0 of that parameter. It just means that whatever is in your tank is using it fast enough so it doesn’t accumulate to higher levels. In this case the tank is using cyano to cope with phosphates, which means there are enough phosphates for the tank to need to compensate.

    Follow the advice on the video, including the use of RO/DI water only, or Distilled water, cut back on the feeding, make sure the tank is not overstocked, all of this takes time to fight of cyanobacteria. Patience and persistence is the key. All of this information is found on this video. Good luck.

    Its possible with a little bit of ingenuity, but it may be too small to have a significant impact on the system. Good luck.

    Yes I have heard of it, and no I would not use it in a tank full of corals such as what you see here.
