This is the most popular package combo for most reef tanks.
AquaMaxx Fluidized GFO and Carbon Filter Media Reactor - Standard
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
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 available in two sizes: Standard
and XL. They 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
AquaMaxx Fluidized Media Reactors require a small pump/powerhead and tubing
(sold separately) to push water through the reactor. You can plumb the
reactor using 1/2" or 3/4" flexible vinyl tubing. Using a ball valve
is highly recommended because it will allow you to regulate the flow
rate. Since different types of media have different flow rate
requirements, be sure to reference the manufacturer’s suggested flow
rate for the media you intend to use (it’s usually listed in the product
description and/or on the product label).
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.

AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor
nutrients inside our aquariums is one of the keys to preventing
nuisance algae growth. The AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor is a
finely-tuned fluidized filter designed to help hobbyists remove nitrates
and phosphates from reef aquarium systems.
AquaMaxx BioMaxx bio
pellet 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.
AquaMaxx Bio Pellet Reactor utilizes a fluidizing plate to keep
biopellet media suspended and evenly dispersed. The upward flow design
provides maximum contact time between your aquarium water and the bio
pellets inside the reactor. The Aquamaxx BioMaxx Biopellets Reactor also
includes a special plate on the lid to keep media within the reactor
without the need for sponges.
Adding a bio pellets 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.
AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor requires a small pump/powerhead and
tubing to push water through the reactor (sold separately). You can
plumb the reactor using ¾" flexible tubing. Using a ball valve is highly
recommended because it will allow you to dial-in the correct flow rate.
A flow rate of 200-300 gallons per hour (GPH) is recommended for the
AquaMaxx BioPellet Reactor. A flow rate of 300-600 GPH is recommended
for the AquaMaxx BioMaxx XL BioPellet Reactor. Exact flow rates required
to tumble the media will vary based on how much media is being used.
optional hang-on adaptor (sold separately) is available for additional
mounting configurations. For best results, use AquaMaxx BioMaxx Plus
BioPellets or similar biofiltration & nutrient control filter media.
AquaMaxx products carry a 90-day manufacturer warranty and include
detailed instructions and diagrams to help hobbyists get up and running
