BR-70 Reef Octopus Bio Pellet Combo Pack - 500mL By Brandon on 1/30/2012

First off, lets start by saying I set this up about 9 months ago.
I must say, I love this reactor! It is a must have for everyone who wants a simple product that makes a huge difference. I keep getting asked "what did I do to my system" because it looks amazing!
It's very easy to set up, although I must say, don't over fill the reactor, as it will plug the screen.
I love it so much, not only have I convinced multiple friends to purchase it, but I bought the 1 gallon container of bio pellets, as I plan on using this reactor from many years to come.
Also, I mean no disrespect to the GFO reactor, as I've used one for multiple years; however, if your debating between the gfo or bio pellet reactor; I recommend spending the extra money on the bio-pellet reactor, not only does it out perform the GFO reactor, but in the long run you will save money!
So far, good stuff By Chris on 1/15/2012

Been using these for several months now. While not at zero nitrates, they keep my levels very very low in a tank that I often overfeed. So that is a plus in my book.
Saving grace By UVAThomas on 1/15/2012

Biopellets have truly saved my tank. I had an overly aggressive hair algae problem after a powerhead blew up and killed everything in my tank. The algae grew and grew with no avail. Then I discovered the biopellets and started running them. The algae is no longer there. It died within 4 weeks of installing the biopellets. I will never stop using them.

After several months with this new material I have mix results. Plants are growing again (they stopped with the previous brand). it clumped. Maybe be I did something wrong: I presoaked them before usage and maybe I should not have done that...
