Could you run the biopellets in a 5g bucket, with water changes, for a couple weeks then hook it up to your system?

Ok so now my tank is really cloudy and all my sps died so I called my lfs they told me to take out the bio pellets and keep dosing my bacteria for a week and every time i dose shut down my skimmer for 4 hrs.... They seem to think it was a strain of a bad bacteria that went out of control with me adding the pellets so I will try it and see how it works

I just don't understand how there could be "bad" bacteria. I have heard this multiple times already. Do you think it's possible that this bacteria stuff just isn't working? I've cycled all of my tanks the "old fashioned" way and have never had a problem.
I've also never had a need for bio pellets.

I agree...I'm not a fan of adding bacteria, or super charging the bacteria for this very reason...it can spin out of control. Never used bio-pellets, but I would do water changes until I was back to square one.
