Includes 500mL of BRS Biopellets
Solid carbon dosing (biopellets) has recently become an extremely popular method of removing nitrates from the aquarium. The exact method of denitrification can be different for each tank but it mainly consists of a few things:
Nitrate laden Bacteria is removed via the protein skimmer
Bacteria directly converts nitrite into nitrous oxide so nitrate is never produced
Bacteria consumes nitrates and processes them down into nitrogen gas
Nitrate laden Bacteria is consumed by tank inhabitants like corals and sponges
Depending on the system it should take 4-8 weeks for the bacteria population to multiply and begin its work on your nitrates. Once you have the reactor going we suggest not making any adjustments for 8 weeks. Give the media and bacteria time to adjust to the parameters found in your tank and begin working. The absolute best advice we can give with this system is to set it up and forget about it for two months. Unless something is obviously not right, resist all temptation to make any changes until the two months are up.
BRS suggests 1 cup or 236 mL per 50 gallons of aquarium water

Great Biopellet Reactor By Phillip on 7/25/2016Phillip wouldn't recommend this product to a friendVery easy setup. The DC adjustable pump is silent and tumbles the pellets very well. Build quality is excellent. Great job SKIMZ.
EZ setup & reliable unit By SeahorseFan on 3/27/2016SeahorseFan would recommend this product to a friendThis combo was quite simple to set up in my sump. Be sure to follow instructions and add just 1/2 the media called for to avoid shocking your tank. Wait a few weeks and add more. Running great and the touch control is awesome. No values to adjust.
Excellent Reactor By William on 1/31/2016William would recommend this product to a friendThis is the best little BP reactor I've had. Never an issue with pellets not moving or clumping. Adjustable speed pump enables you to tumble at your required speed. Worth the investment!
