Never tried them.

I have a. 120 full of corals full of fish. I feed 2-3 times a day. I use a reactor with bio pellets and my nitrates are always 0. It cost about $60.00

Doesn't the reactor need a pump though? Also, I believe vinegar vodka and sugar do the same so I'll dose vinegar and see how that plays out. Bio pellets would be more convenient though because you don't have to dose everyday. Which one do you have?
