    The Nyos Torq is one of the most innovative new media reactor designs we’ve seen in the reef aquarium hobby for several years. First revealed in Germany at InterZoo back in May, Nyos has been tweaking and refining the Nyos reactor ever since and now it’s finally trickling out to reefers globally. Whereas most media […]

    Great and all but when can someone in the states buy it? Also given the size more or less the same between 1 and 2L any disadvantage going bigger?

    I was wondering if you ever got this? I would go with the 1.0 over the .75 because there's minimal difference in size but the 1.0 is capable or either more media or dual media.

    My only concern is the "overflow out the top" design. I imagine the splashing could create salt creep in places (depending on where it is and water height).

    Anybody have this?

    @Forsaken77 - The salt creep is not an issue, the water actually flows over the top at a very smooth rate causing no salt creep or splash effect.

    Mine is in 8 inches of water. It easy to main and refill also. Bottom of mine is carbon and the top is Aqua forest life pro. I have it set on medium flow.

    The Water glides over the outer portion of the body, very smooth.

    Here is a quick YouTube video also of it running inside my sump for you.
