Looking for some opinions on algae turf scrubber vs cheato reactors. My debate is between a PaxBellum n18 or a Clear Water CW-50 for my 100g system. I currently am running a refugium but would like to turn that space in my sump into a small frag section but still want to keep some kind of algae for nutrient export. I also would also like to keep a space for pods to grow but could always add something to the frag section for that as well. Let me know what you guys have had the most success with! TIA!

I've had both, found the Turf scrubber worked really well. The chaeto reactors would work great at first then would stop tumbling and made growth difficult. Scrubber just worked from day 1 perfect.
Thanks I think that's were I'm leaning at the moment
