AquaMaxx 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.

Nice, durable reactor

PROS
Size - diameter and height, well-built, multiple uses
CONS
Connections are difficult to make watertight
REVIEW
I really like this reactor. It has a good diameter to fit different sorts of media in it compared with some other reactors and the height is nice as well. It is sturdy and seems very durable. My only suggestion would be to make the connections easier to make watertight. It took me more than a few ti...Read More

Great Reactor

REVIEW
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.

AquaMaxx Reactors

REVIEW
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 BioPelle...Read More
