Using cannister filters as reactors???

Recommended Posts

This may be an odd question, but can you use small cannister filters as calcium/nitrate/phosphorus reactors?

Reactors on the market are essentially fluidised bed filter, and some cannisters have same water flow direction as these.

eg eheim 2213 has inlet at bottom outlet at top.

remove all media but leave coarse sponge to prevent reactive media from being pumped out.

can adjust flow rate to manufacturer's guide line for reactive media.

last but not least, same principle as reactor (anaerobic environment)

What do you guys/gals think?

Possible, maybe, impossible???
