AquaMaxx CR-1 Nano Calcium Reactor (Media Not Included) Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactors use an upflow design to mix saltwater, calcium carbonate and CO2 inside a reaction chamber to eliminate the need for daily two-part dosing. Not only will the AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactor keep your levels balanced, you will no longer have to calculate daily dosages for your tank. With a seamless body, removable lid for quick media access and a small, space-saving design, the AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactor is truly one-of-a-kind.

AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactors are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest aquarium technology to deliver unparalleled performance and value. Despite its small form factor, the CR-Nano is rated for aquariums up to 100 gallons.

The high-quality components of the CR-Nano are encased in elegant black acrylic. To maintain a sleek compact design, the included Sicce pump is placed underneath the reactor. Compared to other small calcium reactors on the market, the AquaMaxx Nano is almost invisible.

AquaMaxx Calcium Reactors were designed from the ground up with the aquarium hobbyist in mind.

The computer precision-cut enclosure makes the reactor look and feel seamless. There is only one cord on the reactor: the power cord. With the fittings and pump on the same side, everything stays neatly organized.

Cleaning and maintenance is simple. For quick access to the included Sicce pump, simply unscrew the union. Replenishing media is near-effortless with the removable top lid. Just turn the thumbscrews counterclockwise, remove and replace the sponges and replenish the reactor with quality calcium carbonate media.

The workhorse powering the AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactor is the pump. Each reactor is equipped with an Italian-imported Sicce Syncra Nano Silent 0.5 pump. These pumps were specially chosen for their small footprint, energy-efficient design and whisper-quiet operation.

AquaMaxx products are backed by a 60-day return policy and our own 90-day manufacturer warranty. AquaMaxx Calcium Reactors are shipped with detailed instructions and diagrams to help you get up and running quickly.

Comments: It has been performing great. It took maybe 15 minutes to set it up. I have had it up in running for about a week, still tweaking my adjustment on my drip rate to maintain 420-440 calcium rate.

Comments: This reactor is a great little unit, and is working perfectly. The build quality is amazing for the low price tag. I had it up and running within an hour, and have it running now, with no major problems. I only have 3 issues; 1. I can't figure out how to fill the bubble counter. The instructions are not very detailed... 2. The main pump o-ring was not seated properly during factory assembly, resulting in an anoying leak for the first few minutes. The ring is deformed, but after re-seating seems to be maintaining the seal. 3. Instructions need work. All the connections were lose (which was not mentioned in instructions), so it leaked all over the place and made a big mess.
