AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor

Controlling nutrients inside our aquariums is one of the keys to preventing nuisance algae growth. The AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor is a finely-tuned fluidized filter designed to help hobbyists remove nitrates and phosphates from reef aquarium systems.

AquaMaxx BioMaxx bio pellet reactors are computer designed, precision-cut and made of polished A-class acrylic. All AquaMaxx media reactors are rigorously tested to ensure reliability, efficiency and affordability.

The AquaMaxx Bio Pellet Reactor utilizes a fluidizing plate to keep biopellet media suspended and evenly dispersed. The upward flow design provides maximum contact time between your aquarium water and the bio pellets inside the reactor. The Aquamaxx BioMaxx Biopellets Reactor also includes a special plate on the lid to keep media within the reactor without the need for sponges.

Adding a bio pellets reactor to your reef aquarium filtration system will improve the water quality for fish and other marine life. Biopellets initiate a more efficient denitrification process that removes nitrate and phosphate from aquarium water to prevent algae growth or harm to invertebrate and coral.

The AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor requires a small pump/powerhead and tubing to push water through the reactor (sold separately). You can plumb the reactor using ¾" flexible tubing. Using a ball valve is highly recommended because it will allow you to dial-in the correct flow rate. A flow rate of 200-300 gallons per hour (GPH) is recommended for the AquaMaxx BioPellet Reactor. A flow rate of 300-600 GPH is recommended for the AquaMaxx BioMaxx XL BioPellet Reactor. Exact flow rates required to tumble the media will vary based on how much media is being used.

An optional hang-on adaptor (sold separately) is available for additional mounting configurations. For best results, use AquaMaxx BioMaxx Plus BioPellets or similar biofiltration & nutrient control filter media.

All AquaMaxx products carry a 90-day manufacturer warranty and include detailed instructions and diagrams to help hobbyists get up and running immediately.

Comments: Great quality reactor. I upgraded from a Two Little Fishes 150 to this. The design of this reactor allows for even flow and tumbling of the pellets in the reactor. Very easy to set up and maintain.

Comments: I've used many different reactors for biopellets for many years and finally found one that works. Great build quality.great price.the unique water flow inside the chamber keeps all pellets tumbling. Even 2000ml of biopellets in this reactor is no problem.

Comments: I am extremely impressed with the quality and performance of the BioPellet and PhosBan Reactors from AquaMaxx that I installed on my 150G. The one replaced the "Two Little Fishes" PhosBan reactor that would constantly leak even with new O-rings (very poor design and quality). The BioPellet reactor is new to my system. Both were easy to install and are very easy to maintain. Dealing with MarineDepot was painless!

Great Reactor

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I am using a Rio water pump rated at 271gph to run this reactor. In the beginning, the pellets tends to clump and won't tumble at all. After shaking the reactor vigorously while running, it seem to work fine after that. It may take 24 hours to fully loosen your pellets to tumble just right. I am happy with this reactor and I think I will purchase another one!

Happy Customer

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: After one month using this product the only mishap was starting with more than my tank was able to handle, which created cloudy chalky glass. It seems that others also complained about "clumping" of the media causing it to clog holes. From my experience I would suggest putting less and increasing gradually. Other than that it is a great product, I have a balanced and happy aquarium and would repurchase. Big thanks to Kris for consistent and helpful customer service

Comments: I've been using this reactor for two weeks and its simply amazing. I've used a lot of reactors and this one seems to be the right one for the job. Running off a Maxi Jet 1200 on my 90 Gallon reef is the perfect for the job.
