Innovative Marine upsizes their MiniMax reactors for the rest of us

IM's MiniMax media reactors get the big boy treatment. The MiniMax product line will soon come to market in a much larger version, appropriately named the MiniMax FullSize. We love the MiniMax design, and we love that IM has upsized these media reactors for broader aquarist appeal. Advanced Aquarist shares the first detailed information and accompanying video.

MiniMaxFullSizeAssembled.jpgEarlier this year, Innovative Marine introduced their new MiniMax line of media reactors.  These true plug-and-play reactors showcased an ingenious media cartridge-style system that made flow adjustment and media replacement the most elegant we've ever seen for a media reactor.  However, while the MiniMax reactors were one of the most inspired media reactors we've seen in a long time, there was one small problem (no pun intended): the MiniMax reactors were originally designed for aquariums with tight space constraints, thus only available in small media capacities suitable for nano aquariums.

That's all changing!  Innovative Marine has scaled up their MiniMax all-in-one media reactors.  The new reactor MiniMax FullSize shares the same design of their smaller predecessors but now can accept up to one liter of media while still maintaining a small 4.8 inch footprint.  The FullSize also features a new laser cut handle to provide improved ergonomic grip that allows for better flow control of the larger media cartridge.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
