I have seen a few pre-built options through Marine Depot, but the reactors and lights are out of stock with no guarantee they will return. I have seen some close substitutes, but I’m not really sure what would work best for my tank. I’m not really obsessed with adding more water volume, but I run a 29g Biocube. I am mostly interested in an option that comes with the reactor, return pump, and lights included, or a recommendation based off personal experience with similar products. I am not opposed to a small amount of DIY but I don’t want to do a build from scratch. Any advice and pictures is appreciated!

Look into Santa Monica´s hog scrubbers, not chaeto reactors but scrubbers...small footprint, the .5 hog could fit in your AIO sump, not noisy,, efficient, cost wise on par or cheaper than a reactor and the algae it produces can be fed back to your tank for the hervibores unlike the chaeto... also if you put the air pump into a ups backup it serves as an oxygenator for power failures
 

How do you keep your aquarium temperatures down during the hot months?
