AquaMaxx Fluidized Media Reactors are multi-purpose aquarium water filters specially designed for use in marine and reef aquaria. Insert your media of choice to help eliminate organic pollutants, odors, discolorations and algae fuels.

Fluidized reactors, also commonly referred to as phosphate or media reactors, are one of the easiest and most effective ways to use filter media in a saltwater aquarium system. These versatile filters are capable of running several different types of filter media, from activated carbon and granular ferrous oxide to resin and nitrate-reducing media.

The up-flow design of AquaMaxx Fluidized Media Reactors 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 gravity pushes it upward through the media and back out into your tank.

AquaMaxx Fluidized Media Reactors are computer designed, precision-cut and made of polished A-class acrylic. All AquaMaxx media reactors are rigorously tested in saltwater environments to ensure reliability, efficiency and affordability.

An optional hang-on adaptor (sold separately) is available for additional mounting configurations. For best results, use AquaMaxx Phosphate Out Granular Ferrous Oxide (GFO), AquaMaxx Carbon One Activated Carbon or similar aquarium filter media.

Q
How often would I have to change the GFO for 65g reef tank
How much GFO do I put in my reactor?

A
Hello. The amount of GFO that you need depends on the level of phosphate in your tank and the water volume. How often the GFO is changed depends on the phosphate level, when it begins to rise again, it is time to change out the media. We have a handy calculator on our site that can also help https://www.marinedepot.com/md_educationcenter_calculators_reef_chemistry_calculator.html

REVIEW
I still give it four stars because I really like the build quality and the functionality of it. I was using it with my bio-pellets and there is zero media flow. I'm using it for my 75 gallon tank. I didn't even use the full dosage and still no movement. I will have to purchase another pump. I w...Read More

PROS
Cheap and works great
CONS
pump isnt quite adequate
REVIEW
Seems to work just as well as any other media reactor. Im using mine for carbon on a 150 gal tank and it does a great job. The included pump at full flow doesn't move the media much at all so it only gets 4 stars due to needing a bit more flow.
