AquaMaxx S-NANO Calcium Reactor Information

AquaMaxx S-NANO Calcium Reactors use an up-flow 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 S-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 S-NANO Calcium Reactor is truly one-of-a-kind.

AquaMaxx S-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 Nano Star is rated for aquariums up to 50 gallons.

With a built-in a pH probe holder, you can easily keep an eye on the pH inside the calcium reactor with a pH monitor or control the CO2 with a pH controller. A CO2 recovery system re-injects excess/unused CO2. This helps lower CO2 usage and minimizes excess CO2 from going back into your aquarium.

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.

Cleaning and maintenance is simple.

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

  • Simple setup and easy installation.
  • Up-flow design prevents clogging and improves water circulation.
  • Thumbscrews allow for easy lid removal. Easy to clean and service!
  • Use any calcium reactor media you desire with the S-NANO.
  • Overall height: 15.4” (not including hoses)
  • Pump: Italian-made SICCE Syncra Silent 0.5
  • Reaction tube diameter: 2 3/4”
  • Chamber capacity: 0.5 L
  • Footprint: 7.1” x 4.2”
  • Capacity: Up to 50 Gallons
*Calcium reactor media and CO2 system sold separately.

AquaMaxx products are backed by a 60-day return policy and a one-year limited factory warranty. AquaMaxx Calcium Reactors are shipped with detailed instructions and diagrams to help you get up and running quickly.

Comments: Currently running on a 75 gallon tank, and a 40 gallon sump. I chose this unit because of the size and seeing the discontinued nano and what it did. Fits perfect in the cabinet where my sump is located and performs like a champ. It is definitely " THE BANG FOR THE BUCK".
