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 10/20/2012

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.

I got the 1 Gallon jar for my 90 gallon. After running the reactor for 4 months, I am still on my original first cup. But I have to take it down since it is really doing a great job removing all N03 and P04 that my corals are starting to get pale. The product works but hard to control if you are not testing your water weekly.

Dropped my nitrates from 4ppm to .25ppm in 10 days. A little pricey but what isn't nowadays.

im very pleased with this product.
my tank was only 2 months old when i started using biopellets and it has done a great job keeping phosphates and nitrates very low. i haven't had any problems with it or caused any trouble in my tank, and it's super low maintenance. i don't have evidence, but i believe i had helped my tank mature a great deal. long term usage and cost/benefit make sense at this point so ill keep using it.

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!
