Innovative Marine MiniMax All-In-One Media Reactor Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

If you desire the highest water quality but are frustrated with media reactors on the market….Meet the all new MiniMax. The MiniMax All-In-One Media Reactor is a novel approach to optimize chemical and biological filtration for nano aquariums. Its’ innovative Patent Pending design minimizes the need for flexible tubes, pvc pipes, ball valves, thumb screws, and unnecessary clutter that are usually associated with typical media reactors. Its’ ingenious design maximizes performance and offers out of the box responsive flow control, easy maintenance, low power consumption, and the smallest form factor ever built. The versatile MiniMax is designed to be discreetly hidden behind All-In-One Aquariums or placed directly in sumps.

    Responsive Flow Control – Unique dual chamber design, allows for quick and responsive flow control within seconds with a simple turn of knob without the need for ball valves and inlet/outlet pipes.
    Efficiency – Utilizes upward flow pattern that requires less flow and lower energy consumption.
    Eliminate Messy Maintenance– Internal chamber acts as a removable cartridge that simply slides out of outer chamber and automatically drains water out without the need for tools and time consuming thumb screws to unfasten.
    Nano Size – We produced the smallest Nano Reactor with the integrated features right out the box. No additional equipment is necessary. Desktop (150ml Max Volume Capacity).
    All-In-One Design – For use with Bio Pellets, GFO, or Carbon.
    Versatile - Compatible with Innovative Marine NuvoAquarium Mini 16 gallon and other All-In-One aquariums.

Specifications
  • Dimensions: 2.2" x 2.3" x 11.41"
  • Power Consumption: 2.5 watts
  • Pump Flow Rate: 52 gph
  • Maximum Capacity: 150 mL

Experience Level: Beginner


Comments: Purchased the mid size unit (largest that would fit into my sump). Using on a 60 gal system and running with 1/2 cup Aquamaxx GFO. Runs well. Flow adjustment ok; difficult to add too much flow. Unit running for about 2 weeks now. Best of all, phosphates as close to zero I can tell using API test kit. Good unit for small places.

Great Looking Reactor

Comments: I admire the design and functions of this reactor. Setting it up was simple enough. Insert power pump, drop the main body to the desired location, lower the holding bracket over the body and tighten bracket screw into place. Now the inner core media body: you fill the desired media ( mine was GFO), then close the cap/flow adjuster , Rinse media on a separate container filled water and then insert/ drop the media . You then turn clockwise or counter clockwise to adjust water flow until you observed the media are tumbling gently and your done. Btw make sure your selected media of choice are not too fine as mine was that little pieces flowed out. I had to make a modification of adding a round fine pad to keep the media from escaping the reactor.

Comments: Using the midsize reactor in a small sump supporting a 50 gallon reef. Love the small footprint, easy to adjust the flow (but very sensitive) and is tumbling the biopellets really well. Would recommend using a sponge on the top to keep the smaller pellets from exiting even though it says you do not need to use one. Very easy to replenish pellets by removing the cartridge.

Nice reactor

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: This reactor works well. However, the ability to remove the media sleeve instead of the entire reactor seems pointless if you are going to rinse the media; you need the entire reactor to do that. Plus you need a container of water to set it in. It is a little touchy to get the flow adjusted, especially if you are shooting for a low flow setting, but it seems to maintain the setting well. A little expensive, but works well.

Comments: For the size of this unit, it is perfect for any situation were space is limited. The little pump this reactor comes with packs a punch as well, really good flow so I actually had to dial mine down a bit. It was fairly easy to set up and some tweaking was needed to position chamber at the right height for desired effect. the only issue with this reactor is that the top is not marked giving you an easy visual indication if the valve (opening at the bottom of reactor where pump pushes water into reactor chamber) is fully open or closed. Not that its a huge problem since you can tell be the water flow at the top of the reactor, just would of been nice to be clearly marked for convenience and ease of use. Overall, I think it is a great reactor and I would buy another one....thinking of actually using a second one in my Innovative Marine Nuvo 16!!!

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: This is the easiest filter to set-up of all the filters I have had. It also fits in the small sump that I have, and with the adjustable height, I'll be able to place 2 more in the sump. The adjustment knob is tight, but with a pair of needle nose pliers, it moves flawlessly, and you only need to correct the flow once or twice.

Comments: This is the best designed media reactor I have used, (use to run two little fishies) and after watching the video decided to give it a try. I wili say the pumps are kind of wimpy so you may have to upgrade but the easy to use design makes up for it. I have switched over on all four of my reef tanks.unless your really tight on space pay the extra $20 for the mid size over the desktop worth evey penny
