AquaMaxx INTRODUCING THE AQUAMAXX NANO STAR CALCIUM REACTOR
AquaMaxx Nano Star Calcium Reactors use an up-flow design to mix saltwater, calcium carbonate and CO2 inside a reaction chamber to eliminate the need for daily two-part dosing. Not only will the AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactor keep your levels balanced, you will no longer have to calculate daily dosages for your tank. With a seamless body, removable lid for quick media access and a small, space-saving design, the AquaMaxx Nano Calcium Reactor is truly one-of-a-kind.

GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES
AquaMaxx Nano Star Calcium Reactors are computer-precision engineered and utilize the latest aquarium technology to deliver unparalleled performance and value. Despite its small form factor, the Nano Star is rated for aquariums up to 75 gallons.

The high-quality components of the Nano Star are encased in elegant white acrylic. To maintain a sleek compact design, the included Sicce pump is placed inside the reactor. Compared to other small calcium reactors on the market, the AquaMaxx Nano is almost invisible.

With a built-in a pH probe holder, you can easily keep an eye on the pH inside the calcium reactor with a pH monitor or control the CO2 with a pH controller. The included hang-on bracket allows you to mount the Nano Star almost anywhere. A CO2 recovery system re-injects excess/unused CO2. This helps lower CO2 usage and ensures no excess CO2 goes back into your aquarium.

HOBBYIST-FRIENDLY DESIGN FOR QUICK AND EASY MAINTENANCE
AquaMaxx Calcium Reactors were designed from the ground up with the aquarium hobbyist in mind. The computer precision-cut enclosure makes the reactor look and feel seamless. There is only one cord on the reactor: the power cord.

Cleaning and maintenance is simple. For quick access to the included Sicce pump or to replenish filter media, simply open the lid. Just turn the thumbscrews counterclockwise, remove and replace the sponges and replenish the reactor with quality calcium carbonate media.

The workhorse powering the AquaMaxx Nano Star Calcium Reactor is the pump. Each reactor is equipped with an Italian-made Sicce Syncra Silent 0.5 pump. These pumps were chosen specifically for their small footprint, energy-efficient design and whisper-quiet operation.

AquaMaxx products are backed by a 60-day return policy and a 90-day factory warranty. AquaMaxx Calcium Reactors are shipped with detailed instructions and diagrams to help you get up and running quickly.

REVIEW
I have had this reactor hooked up for about 8 months. The problem with the design is there is no bleed valve to extract the extra co2 in the reactor. Having too much bubbles will cause the effluent to not drip properly. Additionally having too much bubbles in the reactor makes this reactor very loud...Read More

REVIEW
I have had a couple other calcium reactors. One got burnt up in a power surge the other one just sucked, but I got this one and wow love it. So easy to run and with a controller its a no brainer. The recycling of the excess CO2 is already cutting down on the amount I have to buy. Instruction cou...Read More

Great Reactor for the $

REVIEW
The quality of the build is excellent. I have this reactor running on my SPS dominate 225g w/ 90g sump. The set up was very simple, the use of thumb screws makes adding/changing the media very easy. The bell curve top design makes excess co2 that would usually get built up in the top get recircu...Read More

REVIEW
I purchased this for my 75 gal because space is tight under the tank and wanted to hang from the back of my sump. Not a chance that it will fit over the euro bracing on the sump. I may try to use a dremmel to cut notches on the bracing. I have not actually used the product because i decided to buy e...Read More

REVIEW
This little thing is just what the doctor ordered.Pretty much set and forget since I'm using a pH controller. The build is polished, sturdy and compact. I could use it in sump but chose to hang it so I could keep the space in sump. No sound from the sicce pump at all and energy efficient. Only thing...Read More

Very Disappointed

reviewerbadge
REVIEW
It has a good design and looks nice, but is built like a piece of junk. The external small clear tube coming from the pump to the bottom of the unit was not solidly glued to the main cyllinder, resulting in leaking when I tried to set it up. This should be a solid PVC piece, not some cheap ABS thi...Read More

REVIEW
I've had this reactor for about a month now and I really like it. It works perfectly on my 65g bowfront, and fits neatly in the sump. The quality of the build is apparent right out of the box. It is sturdy and well made.
