    I just picked up a NextReef biopellets reactor and am looking at starting this up on my system. There are a lot of manufacturers out there, so I'm wondering... which ones seem to give the best results?

    Ecobak seems to be the product if choice for most. Good luck with that reactor though...you're going to need A LOT of pump to get a tumble or of it. It is unfortunately a out dated design for pellet reactors.

    Ecobak is the best.

    I chose Ecobac based on the the good results that others have had(that I have read about here)and the helpful feedback that Jon Warner has given many people on this site.

    I went ahead and picked up some EcoBak and Microbaktr 7. Here's hoping I get some good results!
