AquaMaxx Star S-2 Calcium Reactor Package 1 includes: Star S-2 Calcium Reactor, Deluxe CO2 Regulator, and Caribsea A.R.M. Aragonite Reactor Media 16 lbs (Coarse)
AQUAMAXX Star S-2 CALCIUM REACTOR INFORMATION
The all-new AquaMaxx Star S-2 combines top-quality materials, a high-efficiency pump and innovative design to deliver a superb calcium reactor. Special injection design reduces wear-and-tear and extends the life of the Italian-Made Sicce pump. Conical lid virtually eliminates all dead spots inside the reactor and recirculates unused CO2 to maximize efficiency. 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. Not only will you be impressed by its effectiveness, you will also be impressed visually by the look and design of the AquaMaxx Star Calcium Reactor!
With the AquaMaxx Star Calcium Reactor, CO2 is injected on the outlet side of the pump. This prevents cavitation and helps to prolong the life of the pump. Outlet-injection also ensures that the flow rate inside the reactor stays constant to maximize efficiency.
CO2 recovery design re-injects excess/unused CO2. This helps to lower CO2 usage and to make sure no excess CO2 goes back to your aquarium.
Gravity Feed or Aqualifter Pump recommended for installation!
Reverse-flow design to prevent clogging and improve water circulation.
Thumbscrews allow for easy lid removal. Easy to clean and service!
Designed to be used with any calcium reactor media.

Contains nearly 50 times the strontium of other brands (7390 ppm). It also contains 381,000 ppm Calcium, 590,000 ppm Carbonate, and 1050 ppm Magnesium. ARM™ Fine has the highest solubility of any reactor media available (metastable at 8.2) so typical CO2 consumption is much lower.
Calcium reactors have evolved into several types that require different media sizes. Because of this we now offer ARM™ Coarse for rapid upflow type reactors that have become so popular. This coarse grade of ARM™ will prevent the clogging and upkeep associated with fine media and these reactors.
