Has any one used this reactor?
I was thing about purchasing the Sera Flore reactor. The Ista is less expensive, but I don't know about the quality?

I have one, have bought two. They are fine imo in a smaller tank. The only issue I have found is the inlet where co2 comes in can break off with small effort

Pretty much the same thing as Sera, basically they took the blueprints and made their own or sera branded theirs (who knows).

Only issue I had with it is that the cap for the CO2 line is not CO2 resistant plastic. It broke off into dust in 2 months or so. I replaced it with another one I had around, you can also use some silicone to seal that hose in place.
