AquaMaxx AquaMaxx BioMaxx Plus BioPellets improve water quality for fish and other marine life in saltwater aquariums. BioMaxx Plus BioPellets initiate a more efficient denitrification process that removes nitrate and phosphate from aquarium water. High nitrate and phosphate fuels algae growth and may negatively impact invertebrate or coral.

Using BioMaxx Plus BioPellets inside a fluidized filter (media reactor) will help to achieve maximum results and efficiency. Use 0.5 to 1 liter of pellets for every 125 gallons of water. Starting with a low dosage and increasing over time is preferable to beginning with a higher dosage. Be sure to rinse the media before use.

Instructions
    1. Fill your fluidized media reactor with the appropriate amount of AquaMaxx BioMaxx Plus BioPellets.

    2. Use a ball valve (or similar device) to adjust the flow inside the reactor so that the BioPellets are suspended within the reactor chamber. The pellets should not be pushed to the top.

    3. Check your media reactor once each day to ensure your BioPellets are still fluidized. The pellets will slough layers and decrease in size due to the tumbling action inside the reactor. Replenish your reactor every 3 to 6 months (or as needed) with additional BioPellets.

i AM LOOKING AT THE ACCEL FR-30 AND AM WONDERING HOW TO TELL HOW MUCH MEDIA I NEED.

A
How much biopellets are needed depends on your bioload. A light bioload will require only 500mL (16oz) per 100 gallons while a heavy bioload will require 1,000mL (32oz) per 100 gallons.

REVIEW
Great produce and it works! Using 40 oz in a AquaMaxx XL bio reactor. After 4 weeks, my nitrates are down to 20 ppm in a 150 fish only live rock with a very high bio load. Was at around 40 - 60 ppm with a 40 gal water change weekly.

REVIEW
The Aquamaxx biopellets have been doing a great job in my 300 gallon reef. I've been using about 1 cup of media and they have been keeping the nitrates down easily. It's easy to use too much media and drive the nitrates too low. That's a great way to bleach out your corals! I would recommend startin...Read More

Biopellets

REVIEW
I have not noticed any real difference between competing brands of biopellets. I would be interested in finding biopellets of a larger size so that they do not occlude the screens as much. This is especially true when the pellets begin to shrink during use. I am using a Reef Octopus BIOCHURN reac...Read More
