What is one of the colors on a clownfish? (hint there is a clownfish on the CR logo in the top left corner of the page.)

Are all biopellets created equal?

    Default Are all biopellets created equal?

    I'm on my second batch of Vertex pellets to the tune of $150 and only have about 250ml left. I've seen other pellets out there that are cheaper. At the speed this new reactor is spinning them, I can see a bulk buy in my future.

    Q:Are they all the same thing or are there lower/higher quality biodegradable polymers? I'm spooked about using anything else unless others have had luck with something less expensive.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I need to figure out what pellets i am running......I have no idea what brand they are......

    I can say for sure though, whatever they are, they have my nitrates in check. Phosphate levels are still uncertain. Been running around 7 months now.

    That's what I'm looking for, Chris. Another brand that's worked for somebody. If you find out that would be great.
