Controlling 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 ed to ensure reliability, efficiency and affordability.
The 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.
The AquaMaxx BioMaxx BioPellet Reactor requires a small pump/powerhead and tubing to push water through the reactor (sold separately). You can hard plumb the reactor using ½" male pipe thread (MPT) or use the included fitting for 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 300-400 GPH is recommended for the AquaMaxx BioMaxx XL BioPellet Reactor.
