The AquaFX Bio-Pellet Reactor is based on our standard media/substrate reactors, but with some significant changes...
Blue acrylic for the main body. Made specially for us, the translucent blue color serves an important purpose - it keeps out light to reduce algae and optimize beneficial bacterial growth. They're great in lighted sumps, or anywhere light exposure is a concern.
Modified internal plenum assembly. Our original design works great with sponges and small media - the bio-pellet reactor eliminates the sponges to reduce maintenance. Since BioPellets and Zeolithic media are designed for long term use, reducing maintainence fosters system stability .
- Higher flow rates and reduced head pressure. The AquaFX Bio-pellet Reactor comes set up to use larger fittings than our original reactors, so it flows more water with less restriction. The AquaFX Bio-pellet Reactor flows enough water to easily fluidize larger media.
The AquaFX Bio-pellet Reactor features plenums laser-cut from 3/16" acrylic. They're thick, they're heavy, they're strong and they flow great.
Every AquaFX Bio-Pellet Reactor is hand-crafted in the USA from the highest quality materials, and CAD engineered/ CNC cut for a precise fit.
