pumps 60 ml/min of water from the sump into the reaction chamber and 2.5 ml/min of 2 capfuls of lacl to 5 gal of rodi water. 1st chamber is the reaction, 2nd chamber uses a 5 micron filter to filter out the lacl..there is a good writeup on reef2reef.com and reefcentral.com

I have used both the brs regular and high capacity in my 255 gallon. They both work well, but you have to use more of the regular. The high capacity is best bang for the buck.

They key is to tumble it correctly. I use an old reef octopus biochurn to dial the media in. Get about 4 months of use out of it. Then I only have to add media when needed.
