The latest in BioPellet Reactor design from AquaMaxx. The unique flow pattern of the Omega helps to keep the biopellets in suspension, creates a gentle tumbling and eliminates clumping. The low pressure design also allows for the use of an energy-efficient pump and helps extend pump life. Maintenance requirement is also greatly reduced by the convenient filling port.

Controlling nutrients inside our aquariums is one of the keys to preventing nuisance algae growth. The AquaMaxx Omega BioPellet Reactor is a finely-tuned fluidized filter designed to help hobbyists remove nitrates and phosphates from reef aquarium systems.

AquaMaxx Omega biopellet reactors are computer designed, precision-cut and made of polished A-class acrylic. All AquaMaxx media reactors are rigorously tested to ensure reliability, efficiency and affordability.

Adding a biopellet reactor to your reef aquarium filtration system will improve the water quality for fish and other marine life. Biopellets initiate a more efficient denitrification process that removes nitrate and phosphate from aquarium water to prevent algae growth or harm to invertebrate and coral.

The AquaMaxx Omega BioPellet Reactor also includes a high-quality Sicce Syncra pump. The Italian-Made Sicce pump is quiet, energy-efficient and durable. This reactor and pump combination offers hobbyists unparalleled performance and reliability.

Q
Has anyone tried to use this as a chaeto reactor?
I am wondering if anyone has thought of or tried to use this reactor as a chaeto reactor or if anyone would have any thoughts on this. I read that its beneficial to keep the chaeto in a state of a gentle tumble.

REVIEW
I have this on my 300 gal and it’s got 1000ml of biopellets in it and I had to turn the pump down and it still tumbled better than any reactor I’ve ever seen.

Keeps the pellets spinning and tumbling

PROS
Keeps pellets moving without any clumping or dead spots
CONS
Occasionally the output filter plugs with smaller pellets
REVIEW
This is a new approach to keeping the pellets moving by blowing them with water to constantly keep them in motion. I’m very pleased with the performance. The only troubling spot is that every couple of days after starting and using existing pellets from my other reactor is that the smaller pellets...Read More

For about a year, I have been trying to live w/ the constant clumping in my $250 reactor by CV. I finally gave up and bought the Omega-2. I wish I hadn't waited so long, this reactor is awesome.

PROS
Good design for tumbling the pellets
CONS
Tube for connecting the pump is too short; Fill plug easily dislodges
REVIEW
Reactor works well regarding tumbling of the pellets. However, the connection for the pump is too short. I had to use a zip tie to hold the pump onto the reactor. Additionally, the plug at the top of the reactor can come off easily. Does a good job of reducing nitrates

Pump Clogs Easily
REVIEW
The Omega-2 Biopellet Reactor is a very innovative design that eliminates the biggest problem with polymer media. Most reactors cannot generate enough flow to keep the biopellet tumbling and the bacteria on the media ends up dying and polluting the system. This reactor has no problem with flow! Unfo...Read More
