VERTEX RX-U 2.5L Universal Media Reactor.
Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Furthermore to that the uses of PHA Biodegradable plastics such as “Vertex™ Pro-Bio Pellets” are becoming increasingly popular and prove to be an effective addition to most nutrient-export systems.

VERTEX RX-U 2.5L Universal Media Reactor.

Crystal clear displays are always the goal of any aspiring Reef Hobbyist. As mainstays of the hobby, Activated Carbons and Phosphate Absorbing Medias go a long way towards the fulfillment of this goal by absorbing many of the impurities that accumulate in the water column. Furthermore to that the uses of PHA Biodegradable plastics such as “Vertex™ Pro-Bio Pellets” are becoming increasingly popular and prove to be an effective addition to most nutrient-export systems. Incorporating these medias into the systems has traditionally been accomplished with the aid of filter bags and/or cartridges. However, this is far from being the most effective means of utilizing these products as the medias compact, flow-through declines and the surface area contact becomes compromised. Vertex™ Universal Media Reactors provide a practical solution by fluidizing the given medias, thereby eliminating the problem of compaction and allocating complete control of flow-through to the user.

Rx-U Plus series Media Reactor accomplish these tasks in style. Only the finest material utilized and through precise CNC machining a perfect combination of form and function has been realized. No expense was spared to offer the best quality and most versatile functionality. From Titanium Screws to QUICK-LOC lid design; ease of use, functionality, modularity and easy maintenance has been the aspirations behind designing the RX-U Series.

Rx-U plus is a perfect addition to the Vertex Universal reactor line-up for when removing the reactor from system is not possible and/or convenient. Dual chamber design of Rx-U PLUS series enables the user to remove the inner media container from the unit to facilitate an exchange without the need to remove the reactor completely. Media exchange and/or replenishment has never been easier.

Rx-U Plus units are designed for INLINE hard-plumbed and/ or REMOTE soft-hose applications. Set up is a breeze and further to that the unit can also be fully disassembled for thorough maintenance. While the reactor is perfectly fit to run probiotic media, additional Bio-Peller add-on assembly is offered for replacement of foam discs if and when desired and/or necessary.

  1. Excellent so far Review by Mike
    Product Rating:

    I finally got tired of trying to get my Eheim canister to work correctly, so I decided to put the biological media from the canister into three of these. A fourth was partly filled with carbon. Expensive, yes, but I didn't see a good alternative.
    Even the packaging was impressive. If you have ever bought an Apple product, you get the idea.
    They are very well-made. Having an inner chamber for the media is particularly convenient, allowing for easy rinsing of the contents. I guessed correctly that the four reactors almost exactly duplicated the volume of the Eheim, with a little to spare. Be aware that they are made in Germany, so sizes are probably metric. One-inch hose fit the tubing connectors easily.
    Set up was easy and leak-free. I have only had them set up for a couple weeks, but I am already considering whether to install them on a second aquarium. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/26/2017)
