Bay reservoirs are almost always require more effort to bleed. I have used Feser One and Thermochill EC6 with the reservoir and got algae both times. Switched to the EK Multioption X2 and never had issues with algae, but it leaked. EK shipped the first round of X2 with a bad O-ring; they said they fixed the issue by buying O-ring from another company. I recently bought a Koolance RP 402 X2. Nice reservoir, but has some issues:

1) Bleeding requires lots of patience,
2) They used way too much lubricant to hold the O-ring in place,
3) Good luck getting that acrylic cover back on if you take it off,
4) The pumps are louder.
