    Hi :)

    I read somewhere that using the external filter as a Reaktor/diffuser will harm/Destroy the bacterial culture in it.

    Is this correct?

    Best regards Jimmy

    hmm.. that might be true.... but if your reactor is there to dissolve Co2, it doesnt really need to have a bacterial culture... your filter etc. should take care of that need...

    I think the poster was referring to using one's canister filter as a reactor. I ran said setup for a cpl of months with no ill affects on water chemistry.
