AquaMaxx FR-SE GFO Carbon and Biopellet Hang-On Filter Media Reactor Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

AquaMaxx FR-SE External Media Reactor is a great multi-purpose aquarium water filters specially designed for use in smaller marine and reef aquaria. Insert your media of choice to help eliminate organic pollutants, odors, discolorations and algae fuels. Great for use with Carbon, GFO (such as TwoLittleFishies Phosban, AquaMaxx Phosphate Out, D-D ROWAphos) and even BioPellets!

Water is introduced into the bottom of the filter and then pushed upward through the media and back out into your tank. An innovative bracket keeps the inlet and outlet tubes securely in place.

Made of high-quality acrylic components for precise fitment and excellent durability. Built-in hang-on bracket allows for easy installation.

Comments: I pat beginning, I was annoyed with reactor for various reasons: The enclosed instruction did not display a full picture of reactor hooks up to motor. Also, enclosed instructions did not include any troubleshooting solution. It would be nice to know on how to resolve a water overflowing problem without making a phone call. For future customers, if reactor is overflowing with water, please try hose clamps. Please make sure screws are tight as possible. As furor reactor.

Comments: The reactor is made of tough looking acrylic and well made. I was not sure what type of pump to buy but settled on a 185gph Hydor Centrifugal pump. It has adjustable flow and comes with 1/2" hose barbs that screw into the pump. I run it wide open and it is adequate with the container half full of bio pellets.

Comments: +1 for packaging and appearance, arrived in excellent condition, looks quality built, feels sturdy and the acrylic is very clear. I like how the lid attaches with screws, it is easy to remove and no leaks. I am using a valve to control the water flow through the reactor and the media tumbles very evenly all around. I purchased two of these to run side-by-side with carbon and GFO to replace my TLF150 reactors. I like this reactor better simply because it is easier to remove the lid for servicing. A couple dislikes: The input/output connectors are adjustable but do not align at a straight 90 degree rotation to allow close placement next to each other. In the default alignment, one of the hose connections is partially over one of the lid screws. I have also had a small amount of carbon ROX 0.8 and granular GFO pass-thru the reactor sponges and end plates. Overall this is a very nice quality product, I would buy again.

Comments: First of all upon unboxing, the unit exudes quality. The cast acrylic makes this unit feel solid and well built. It's a nice size for small to medium reef set-ups & the hang on device with black screws is wide enough to fit on most sumps even with wider rims like mine. Currently running GFO....tumble is pretty good (GFO is hard to dial in regardless of reactor). If you are looking for a high quality, affordable, hang on reactor this is it.

Comments: Replaced my TLF reactor with this one. It is nice solid acrylic. The top screws can be a pain but keeps it tight and secure. Looks like it will last a long while.
