BRS Bulk Biopellets

  • Can't get my nitrates down By Roman on 8/19/2014

    8 months after starting using BRS biopellets in my Innovative Marine media reactor still cannot get nitrates down, it seems to be stuck at 10-20 ppm. No negative side effects like bacteria or diatoms boom, but I was hoping to get results faster. Started dosing Brightwell Microbacter7, hope it will properly seed the reactor with better bacteria strain and start bringing down nitrates
  • Good product By Davidfrances on 8/18/2014

    I have been running the BRS product now for a few weeks. Like some of the other reviewers, I have not noticed a significant uptick in the amount of skimmate being pulled out of my tank, but the skimmate that does come off now is exponentially more rank than before. I can report that my nitrate and phosphate levels are below the measuing ability of my test kits, having gone from 10ppm nitrate and 40 ppm phosphate previously.
  • Rapid Degradation By Eldog on 8/5/2014

    After 4 months the BRS biopellets were removed due to rapid degradation with fine plastic silt accumulating everywhere down-stream of the reactor via the effluent. After conferring with the BRS Tech Advisers, they suggested moving a greater volume of water through the reactor to mitigate accumulation of too much bio-mass. The accumulation was clearly fine particles of the biopellet material and not associated with biologic bacterial cells. The added water-flow simply accelerated the break down of the pellets. I have switched to Ecobak pellets and will restart the reactor. I receive all of my dosing, RODI and filter media from BRS and have always been very satisfied. I feel this product is defective however.
  • Large Pellets By Anthony on 7/15/2014

    Biopellets seem to be the wave of the future. They work, it is obvious. These pellets seem to be a bit larger than some.
  • Rapid degradation By Eldog on 6/24/2014

    I am very pleased with the nitrate reduction since running biopellets in the BR140 reef octopus reaction chamber on my 240 gallon reef tank. Nitrates went from 5 ppm to undetectable in 16 weeks. The downside at this point is a rapid degradation of the pellets leaving a fine but thick pasty emulsion on the upper segment of the chamber, return plumbing, and sump / protein skimmer. The degradation was rapid between 15 - 18 weeks I noticed a steady accumulation of biopellet emulsion. I have rerouted the output side of the reactor through my filter sock in fear that this emulsion may have an adverse reaction on the tank inhabitants and corals.
  • Great product so far By Sharkboy on 3/14/2014

    The pellets tumble nicely with an Eheim 2000 and bashsea reactor. Pellets don't clump either. Time will tell if notates are lowered as they have only been tumbling a week now
  • DONT DO IT! By Todd on 2/23/2014

    If your tank is already up and running DON'T!!! use this stuff. It killed my whole tank slowly but surely. It made everything healthy and brighter at first then came the cyano bacteria . I immediately removed it and did a massive water change to get rid of any of the bacteria it created but I was too late and over the next 6 months no matter what I did it didn't help and now I have a tank full of rock and a starfish.
  • pretty good By Dustin on 12/11/2013

    works good for nitrate reduction but I dont see it helping with phosphates in my tank.
  • Great stuff, good price, but 500ml is a tiny bag By Anthony on 12/3/2013

    I've been running the stuff for 9 months and have been very happy with the results. The last time I ordered I ordered the 1000ml and that's the small size shown in the picture, this last time I accidentally ordered the 500ml, thinking it was the small size I ordered before and was disappointed. My fault of course.

    I really think the two small sizes should be listed in cups instead of ml since the calculator only shows the number of cups recommended.
  • Great so far By Russell on 11/30/2013

    I have been running these pellets in my DIY reactor for about 8 weeks now with great results. I havent noticed much of an uptick in my skimmate, but nitrates are down and algae is almost completely gone. I may have to step up feeding or supplement feed my crabs and snails soon.
