AquaMaxx UltraMaxx AIO All-In-One Filter Media

Size: 8 fl. oz. treats up to 50 gallons freshwater for 6 months, or 25 gallons saltwater for 4 months.


AquaMaxx UltraMaxx AIO All-In-One Filter Media is the only filter media you need for crystal clear water in your freshwater, saltwater fish or reef aquarium. It removes phosphates, silicates, organic pollutants and heavy metals while reducing nitrates and improving oxidation reduction potential (ORP). This long-lasting blend of super absorbent multi-resin media will only need to be replaced every 4 to 6 months when used as directed.

AquaMaxx UltraMaxx AIO is packed into filter bags that you can place inside your canister filter, hang-on back filter or inside the filtration chamber of your aquarium. No muss, no fuss!

UltraMaxx AIO is AquaMaxx’s most advanced filter media to date. It contains a specially-formulated bituminous coal carbon, phosphate removal resin and a powerful organic removal resin. You will immediately notice the difference in water clarity and your tank inhabitants will benefit from living in a healthier aquatic environment.


AquaMaxx UltraMaxx AIO Filter Media contains an efficient coal-based activated carbon with a low density, high adsorption capacity. What does that do for your tank? Organic pollutants, odors and discolorations will be eliminated leaving crystal clear water that allows better light penetration with increased ORP.

UltraMaxx AIO also contains an advanced phosphate removal resin that gets rid of phosphates and silicates in aquarium water. Phosphates and silicates contribute to the presence of nuisance algae and diatoms. UltraMaxx AIO starves algae fuels to prevent blooms and will not leach any phosphates or silicates back into your aquarium.

A special organics-selective resin is included in this special blend of media to lower nitrate levels and reduce the need for frequent water changes. A uniform, spherical shape maximizes surface area for high capacity organic pollutant collection. A unique amine eliminates the possibility of “nitrate dumping,” which can occur with standard resins.

AquaMaxx UltraMaxx AIO All-in-One Filter Media will effectively filter a freshwater aquarium up to 6 months and saltwater tanks up to 4 months, depending on your aquarium feeding habits and bioload.

Not good

Used this in hopes of combating a number of pollutants in the water like phosphates, silicates and nitrates. Did not see any improvement as I had an algae bloom ... what fixed it? Water changes. But even though I did see an improvement with the changes, other algae would flourish. I did not get the sense that it was absorbing these pollutants or helping at all. The carbon did not do justice, water was murky. I just feel this is a cheap product and buyers beware. Switch to Seachem Seagel and de-nitrate for pollutant control. Used appropriate amount for 6g fluval edge tank and placed in filter where water moves a lot.

peace of mind

I love this product. I don't have to test as often knowing I have a back up product to keep my water quality regular. I put quite a biological load on my little nano but haven't had any swings in nitrates since using AquaMaxx.

Good Media Product

Product takes a week or two to work after initial use. This product does what it's intended to do however I did notice that the media had to be changed anywhere between 2 and 3 months (saltwater tank)and my bio-load is minimal since all i have is two small clown fish in a 100gal tank. Overall, I would recommend the product as my ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate levels always seem to be in check when I use it

More like activated carbon

Immediately upon opening the bag... the media acted and reacted the same as plain old activated carbon, it's even coal black. I've noticed no change in my system upon placement.

Just recieved the product 3 days ago. Only down side was getting the media bag out of the container without spilling the media everywere. Anxious to see how effective it is on water quality.

You have to get this!

I purchased this for my 90 gallon saltwater tank and I saw results immediately after putting it in. My water is crystal clear and I am getting readings of zero on the nitrates, nitrites and ammonia! If you consider the fact that it lasts for 4 months it saves time and money. It's been in my tank for over a month and it's still working great.I will not use any other product from now on. My fish are the happiest and healthiest they've ever been!
