AquaMaxx FR-M Internal Media Reactor


AquaMaxx FR-M Internal Media Reactor is a good option to add a media reactor in a smaller aquarium, in a filter chamber in an all-in-one or even a sumps where space is limited. Besides its small size, it gives you the option to use a variety of media including activated carbon, granular ferric oxide (GFO) or even biopellets.

The new AquaMaxx FR-M Internal Media Reactor features an up-flow design to help keep the media suspended and evenly dispersed allowing it to do its job more efficiently. It features an adjustable Sicce Micra Plus pump mounted on the bottom to adjust the flow based on the type and volume of the media.

Like many new internal devices, they got rid of suction cups and incorporated a magnet mount making it easier to mount on aquariums up to 3/8 in. thick (and to keep it there). The AquaMaxx FR-M measures in at 10 x 4.35 x 4.75 in. and will hold up to 700ml of media. This is enough GFO for up to 120 gallons, carbon for up to 80 and biopellets for up to 50 gallons. The integrated Sicce Micra pushed up to 158 gph and consumes 7W.

The AquaMaxx FR-M retails for around $99.99 and is available now.
