Default which biopellets is the best?

hey guys im battling alot of nitrate problems and I've been reading up on biopellets, they seem super easy to use, and the best part is there are no overdosing on these things! they're might be alittle cyano for a short period of time but i really am interested in this, has anyone with better experience tried this more then 3 months with good success? which brand is good ? i heard of swc xtreme np reduction, BRS bio pellets, NP biopellets( i saw bad reviews) i want to know which one is the bang for your buck!


and im also going to use it in a PHOSBAN reactor, typically 2 little fishes 150 reactor..i know i will have to modify the reactor i cant use a sponge anymore, will have to switch out.

They should all work similarly. I think the one that has the most users is Warner Marine's (sponsor on 3reef). I also think it has the cheapest price which is why so many use it.

I vote finding out why you are having such nitrate issues and actually solving the problem instead of searching for band-aid solutions, but that's just me

YouTube - BioPellet Reactor Quick Setup Guide for Saltwater Aquariums

marine depot sells the screens, so if you order your reactor from them its easy to just order the screens. other wise the craft store has them in the knitting section for 59 cents each
