    Anyone using this? Is the mj-1200 pump big enough and worth ordering?

    I use the dual reactor and the MJ1200 is plenty. If you are planning to use carbon and gfo, again it is plenty. The GFO is the main concern with the pump output. You only want it to slightly tumble, so the output of the pump will have to be turned down, or at least it does in my instance.

    How do you all keep the end of the reactor tubing in tack on the sump output end.

    I made an acrylic holder for it. Pretty much a piece of acrylic heated and bent, hole drilled, and then a plastic screw in it to hold some tension on the line
