AquaMaxx FR-S Internal 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 and even BioPellets!

The up-flow design of AquaMaxx FR-S Internal 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 is then pushed upward through the media and back out into your tank. The included adjustable Sicce Micra pump allows you to easily adjust the flow rate.

A magnetic mount easily and securely attaches the FR-S reactor to your sump, or the back chamber of your All-In-One style aquarium.

Q
Will this work on a 70g w/carbon. I'm using BRS BULK LARGE PARTICLE LIGNITE CARBON and it recommends 1 tsbp per gallon. So I don't need a lot of carbon. Thought this would be perfect.

Hello, 70 teaspoons is about 345ml of media - the capacity of this media reactor is 250ml. 70 tablespoons is about 1035ml so this reactor is small for either of those measurements.

way to powerful for GFO
reviewerbadge
PROS
strong pump, small form factor.
CONS
too powerful of a pump for GFO
REVIEW
While it is small, the magnet is strong and the pump is waaaaaay to powerful. I can't rate it high. I ended up showing a huge sponge in it and it was still to powerful, so happy I wasted a whole bunch of RowaPhos in this thing.

Works exactly as advertised. The switch on the side is a little different that the one they show on the videos, but it is actually easier to use. Great product that I would recommend to my friends.

REVIEW
The unit is well made, but lacks a flawless function design. The pump is over-powered, but not useless. You simply need to keep it on its lowest setting or media will blow out. Despite other information you may receive, there is no way to "successfully" change the media without taking the whole u...Read More

REVIEW
I received a reactor that has a very loose connection with the attached pump. The pump keeps seperating from the reactor body. I remedied this by wrapping the connector with teflon tape. Since doing this ive had zero issues and the reactor works great. Would have given the unit a higher score had i ...Read More
