Experience a different method of keeping your tank water clean and clear without installing gadgets or even using electricity. By using the new NP Biopellets Filter Media from Pet Store, you are literally battling bacteria by bacteria. This is available in a 500-milliliter bottle, which can be used to treat several gallons of liquid. It is specifically designed to remove elemental impurities, such as ammonia, phosphate, and nitrate the natural way.

What’s great about this product is that it introduces you to a technique of removing bad bacteria that you may not be familiar with. The liquid inside the bottle is actually composed of millions of microorganisms that will eat any type of elements in your water. The bacteria can engulf as much pollutants as it can until it becomes large enough to be filtered by your protein skimmer. it is quite safe for your fish and coral life, assuring you that you can pour this formula directly on your tank without removing its contents.

Excellent product Product Review by DAVID CORTADA (Posted on 1/20/13)

Excellent!

Comments: I was having problems with high nitrates and phosphates in 300 gal reef tank. I used GFO for a while, but get disappointed with all that mess. I also used some NOPOX additives, but with my tank size that was too expensive in the long run.
I did a research and found some interesting posts relating very good results with biopellets, of course there are others with very negative feedback.
One thing it was clear to me, they are able to effectively deal with nitrates and in some extend also phosphates, but on the other hand good experiences where always a result of using basic procedures and equipment.
I'm now using them for about 6 months in a reef octopus reactor and directing the out flow of the reactor to inlet of the skimmer. Results are expectacular, I'm controlling nitrates to be 1ppm and phosphates 0,04, and no maintenance at all, just add some new bacteria (prodibio biodigest) from time to time to keep a wider variety of strains.

Comments: We can't compare value on these biopellet products without a weight. These are the most expensive per liter, but they may have more mass (material). I see they've changed their shape since I bought them from the inventor a while back. Not sure what that will do to performance yet. Will get back on this.

NP Biopellets Product Review by TRACEY JELLY (Posted on 4/2/11)

Excellent!

Comments: There has been so much negative criticism of NP Biopellets on this review site. This is not a system you set-up and notice results immediately. However, many people do not report good results within three days or even three weeks. It has taken my NP Biopellet system 10 weeks to achieve acceptable results. I have had to monitor the system throughout this period. To achieve good results I had to increase the NP Biopellets by 50% compared to the recommended dosage.

I have a 265 gallon system, with a sump, refugium and a very good skimmer. If you are having trouble with nitrates I would consider the following before NP Biopellets were utilized: examine flow within the tank and examine protein skimmer. I would recommend NP Biopellets but would also warn that patience is a virtue.

trying to be useful Product Review by Eli (the Bruler) (Posted on 2/8/11)

Comments: I have a fairly heavily stocked 180 gallon reef. I run a 100 micron filter sock, a euro-reef rs-180 alfa, 6 liters of Seachem Matrix in the sump, 250mL of Seachem Phosguard in a reactor, and 250mL of Seachem Purigen on a tray in my bubble trap. I use a tunze auto top off and dose kalk with it. I run two 14k 400w Halides 18" above the tank. Flow is 2 Korralia 6s and a Tunze wavebox. Sump overturn is about 15x.

Before adding this media my parameters were stable at:

sal = 1.026
phos = 0.01 mg/L
nitrate = 2 mg/L
pH = 8.3
Alk = 3.5meq (dkh 10)
Ca = 430

I added roughly half the media prescribed by the instructions into my reactor and (per instructions) removed the phosguard. The inlet water came from my return chamber of my sump (cleanest water in the system) and my outlet water went directly into my skimmer, (which went turbo btw)

Within 3 days I had a major bacterial bloom. My water clouded massively and overloaded my filter sock in a day. I went from cleaning my glass every other day to twice a day. An A.Formosa and a S.Hystrix browned out. My parameters went to:

sal = 1.026
phos = 0.2 mg/L
nitrate = 5 mg/L
pH = 8.0
Alk = 3.0meq (dkh 8.4)
Ca = 430

This doesn't seem like a major blow out, but if you consider the phos is about 20x higher and the nitrate is 2x higher and a large amount of nutrient had to be tied up in that bloom as well, it starts to look No Bueno.

I guess I should have followed my own advice and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." I am back to running the phosguard. A large (30 gallon) water change and 2 fresh filter socks later, the tank looks almost normal (except the two corals) I suppose I could get another reactor and try to run the phosguard and the np bio-media at the same time, but why?

My two cents? If you have alot of flow, and a stable system, don't mess with it, or at least add it slowly and don't use it to replace anything. Maybe it works better on new systems. Two stars only because nothing died.
