Bio Pellets work by providing a solid carbon food source for the denitrifying bacteria so you will need to replenish the media from time to time
bio pellets are made from 100% natural PHA and are the ideal solid carbon source for denitrifying bacteria in the aquarium short of useing a sulfur nitrate reactor which is more of a complicated advanced method.
Maintaining low nitrates is key to maintaining the best coral coloration, healthy fish and avoiding algae outbreaks. Fish foods and resulting waste eventually breaks down into nitrates.It's important to rember that bio pelletes are more intended for control of No2 and No3, In my view high capacity GFO
in a fluidized reactor is still the best way to reduce and control Phosphates.Hope that helps
