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.

Just the canister

PROS
Small and somewhat compact
CONS
It’s not a complete reactor
REVIEW
You receive nothing but the canister. Pump and hoses are your responsibility, also there’s one screw in the way of the return fitting. This fitting can be moved but it throws the return hose off in a different direction so it can’t easily go into the guide that is provided. Beyond that it’s we...Read More

REVIEW
I tossed the included barb fittings for a rotating quick connect elbow (1/2") for output and a ball valve quick connect elbow for the input. Way easier to take off top screws.

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.
