A short time ago I purchased the BRS dual Medea reactor for GFO,CARBON, BIO, whatever. I have read a lot about this stuff and I will be applying this system to my 16gal nano when I arrive at my next duty station in San Juan, PR. I know it sounds like I am installing a Chevrolet big block engine in a Mini Cooper, but why not give it a shot!
Another great Product from BRS!!! By Michael on 4/19/13

I was running GFO in my BRS Reactor and I was having to change it every two weeks. My Phosphates and nitrates were on the high side for me so started to do research on biopellets and decided to give then a try. Since having them running in the system the levels have dropped greatly. I will update this in about a month or so as to get the full capabilities of this wonderful product.

I bought these to run in my BRS reactor but recently switched over to Chemi-pure elite. Nice product but got nervous looking at forums and people were stating that once you use them, you can't stop. One if the reasons were serious nitrate spikes if you do. I'm not sure if this is false or true. However with reef tanks their is alot of misguiding info on forums. I may take the plunge after my current media depletes.
So far so good.... By Tyler on 2/4/13

This is my 1st experience with biopellets and so far so good! I have started these on one of my tanks just to see how it works before I switch everywhere. The cost is great and the kids like watching them
So far, these are the solution to my problems. By Ryan on 12/22/12

With all of the reviews that I had read on biopellets, they seemed to be hit or miss. I have them running in a two little fishies 550 reactor and removed the two sponge filters. They do fit through the wholes in the red covers but as long as flow is kept under control they can't make it high enough to escape. Since the introduction of the biopellets on Nov, 25th my phosphates have dropped 28% without a water change and nitrates have dropped by 50% with a water change (I forgot to test nitrates after the water change). I did have a slight algae bloom where the water got cloudy for roughly a week after the introduction of the pellets. Other then that one side of the pellets tends to clump and not flow as well as the other. This is more than likely due to the reactor not being built specifically made for biopellets.

These things work great my nitrates are always low and they last a long time! They are kind of expensive but not so bad for how long they last! Would buy again.
No problems clumping and lasts a long time. By jlemoine2 on 10/24/12

Great product for bio-pellets and the price is reasonable compared to some other sources for bio-pellets.
I found soaking the pellets in new salt water for a day or two helps prevent the pellets from wanting to float inside of the reactor.
I must stress: In order to have success with bio-pellets, you must follow the instructions (the BRS videos are helpful), and above all, be patient! Bio-pellets are not a quick fix.
I run these pellets in a NextReef solid media reactor. I plumb the output of the reactor into a tee I installed on the input of my protein skimmer.
I keep the flow relatively slow through my reactor. The only time I ever see signs of the pellets clumping is when I go several months without cleaning the screen in the reactor... when that happens, one side near the bottom does not get stirred so well. However, I'm easily able to maintain a low flow without worrying about clumping issues.
Great product! I like being able to order it from the same place I get my other consumable supplies.
Seems to work so far... By Steve on 10/21/12

My first experience with biopellets. So far, on my 155 gal system, I'm breaking in the first 200 ml, and I've not had any problems. At the 3 week mark, so need more time to see effects. Going slow as recommended.
