Note: Could be adapted to be used with a 3168
Comline Bio-Hydro-Reactor 3179 is a two-stage reactor (oxidation / reduction) provided with a magnet holder for attachment to glass panes up to a thickness of 12mm (3/8"). The unit contains a fill of highly porous GRANOVIT granulate (highest biological degradation activity 300m), and is constantly supplied with a small volume of the filtered water from Comline Quick-Run Filter 3166.50/3167.50 (NOT INCLUDED and no longer available, but could be adapted to work with a 3168 ).
The aquarium water enriched with (air) oxygen causes an oxidation zone in the GRANOVIT granulate. Ammonia and nitrite are degraded here. A reduction zone is produced in the medium area of the granulate, in which the nitrate is degraded. On account of the fine pores, very high biological degradation activities are possible.
In marine biotopes Comline Bio-Hydro-Reactor 3179 has a similar biological effect as highly porous live rock (approx. 10 kg (22 lbs.)).
Dimensions: L125 x W113 x H300mm (L4.9 x W4.4 x H11.8 in.). 
Immersion depth: 150 to 290mm (5.9 to 11.4 in.).
Cleaning performance: up to 500 L (135 USgal.) of fresh or salt water.
Magnet holder up to a glass thickness of 12mm (3/8").
