Worth a good rinsing to rule them out at least I would think.

I'm not sure. I'd personally opt for rubble over bioballs though. For a start, I'd rinse the balls to see if that's where the issue is coming from. If it is, then definitely switch. JMO.

Is it a wet/dry trickle or are the bio-balls submerged? Sounds like they are submerged, correct?

it needs to be cured, so I guess that answer is LR... or cured base rock which is the same thing
