    BRS Bulk Biopellets work to remove nitrates produced when fish foods and resulting waste break down. Maintaining low nitrates is key to maintaining the best coral coloration, healthy fish and avoiding algae outbreaks.

    We recommend 8 ounces (1 cup or 236 mL) of BRS biopellets per 50 gallons of system volume.

    Available in four sizes:

    • 16 Ounces
    • 64 Ounces
    • 128 Ounces

     

    BRS Bulk Biopellets are made from 100% natural Polyhydroxyalkanoates or PHA and are an excellent solid carbon source for denitrifying bacteria in the aquarium.

     

    BRS Bulk Biopellets are produced by a leader in the industry, designed specifically for denitrification in aquaria and we believe it to be the best product available. Use of biopellets will also remove phosphates - combined with wise food selections it can be the only type of phosphate control required.

     

    All you need to implement BRS Biopellets is an inexpensive fluidized reactor and a pump.

     

    Maintaining low nitrates is key to maintaining the best coral coloration, healthy fish and avoiding algae outbreaks. Fish foods and resulting waste eventually break down into nitrates. Aquarists’ primary method of dealing with nitrate removal is water changes, but over the years we have developed a few ways to remove nitrates with equipment like refugiums, sulfur reactors, and deep sandbeds. All of these methods work to various degrees but are often less efficient than we would like or the level of complexity, expense and maintenance is beyond what the average reefer would desire

     

    Solid carbon dosing (biopellets) has recently become an extremely popular method of removing nitrates from the aquarium. The exact method of denitration 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.
