What's everyone's opinions on whether to run phos remover separately or whether to leave the N/P pellets to reduce phos on their own?
Bio Pellets is not very good at removing po4. best to run separately as you will get better results.

Would also like to resurrect this thread...

I'm interested in the concept of using something to combat nitrates/phosphates long term, and started a thread on the Bio Aquatek page that seems to have resulted in Tony pulling his sponsorship....

Who is using pearls, and what impact are they having on your livestock? Are you dosing trace elements as well?

IMHO biopellets should be a consideration. BUT. You have to have a good reactor. You need good suspension so a lot of flow. Reactors like phosban need a lot of cleaning even 2 times per week to maintain the good flow.
I really like to put food in the water and the biopellets seem to help me keep the system more "natural". They produce bacteria which are food supply for my corals.
