wondering what everyone has done with there BRS mini reactor, in sump or stand mount?

pros ans cons of each please.

I am leaning toward stand mount but not sure of the best way to do it. I guess attaching it to the stand and unscrew the housing for refilling. will it leak when you do?

so us how/what you did please :)

I just stick mine in the skimmer chamber off a manifold. There's water when you unscrew so you have to be careful removing the reactor.

Mine is screwed into the side of my cabinet. Just be careful unscrewing it, and you won't spill it.

like how careful? having a hand towel with you as you unscrew for a few droops or like a stream of salt water running down the side of the stand mess?

Just a few drops, it will only be full up to the oring. I actually very rarely spill it, but I just dump it back into my sump when I'm changing it out anyways.
