AquaMaxx AquaMaxx FR-SE External Media Reactor is a great multi-purpose aquarium water filters specially designed for use in smaller marine and reef aquaria. Insert your media of choice to help eliminate organic pollutants, odors, discolorations and algae fuels. Great for use with Carbon, GFO (such as TwoLittleFishies Phosban, AquaMaxx Phosphate Out, D-D ROWAphos) and even BioPellets!

The up-flow design of AquaMaxx FR-SE External Media Reactor helps to keep filter media suspended and evenly dispersed to provide maximum contact time between your aquarium water and the media inside the reactor. Water is introduced into the bottom of the filter and then pushed upward through the media and back out into your tank. An innovative bracket keeps the inlet and outlet tubes securely in place.
*Water pump and tubing sold separately

Made of high-quality acrylic components for precise fitment and excellent durability. Built-in hang-on bracket allows for easy installation.

Well made, looks decent, good price
CONS
Opening is a little tuff but its not that bad
REVIEW
Very well made. I used Rowa Phos in this reactor. Just needed an adjustable flow pump to get it to flow just right in the reactor and it eliminated all phosphates in my fresh water tank. i had no issues hanging it on my tank. Suggest placing it so it is not directly under lighting to prevent any...Read More

PROS
Very good quality reactor
CONS
Needs to purchase tubing separately
REVIEW
I bought this item to use as a hang-on GFO/carbon reactor for my Innovative Marine 30L aquarium and I really like this product. For the price, it is very well made and easy to use. It would have been great if the manufacturer had charged a few dollars more and included the tubing.

PROS
Really Solid construction at a great price.
CONS
One thumb screw is too close to the output hose.
REVIEW
I'm pretty happy with this product. It is solidly built and has worked well with the AquaMaxx HighCap GFO. The acrylic is really top notch and the form factor is perfect for me. So much so it's part of the custom sump/cabinet plans that I'm implementing tomorrow (1/7). My only complaint is that ...Read More

REVIEW
The reactor is made of tough looking acrylic and well made. I was not sure what type of pump to buy but settled on a 185gph Hydor Centrifugal pump. It has adjustable flow and comes with 1/2" hose barbs that screw into the pump. I run it wide open and it is adequate with the container half full ...Read More
