Any Differences ?

When setting a marine aquarium by using the DSB, can put a layer of Biohome Filter Pellet (http://www.aqua-bio.com/en/biohome/benefits.html)
MEGALITE(http://www.pondshop.com/catalog/megalite.htm)or Biolit(http://www.allproducts.com.tw/sup005/eelake/p1.html) in-between the sandbed for biological activity ?

Will it be more effective as compared putting inside a power filter ?

Use sand only, the products you mention are not necessary and not recommended.

I thought the products help for biological activities to reduce ammonia, nitrite and nitrate ?

The sand will handle that all by itself

Those products based upon their size can acutally cause the DSB to operate less effecently.
