I don't own a bak pak so I don't know if you could add the bio bale. But since the 2R is different I would think that you can not.
Do you have FW
experience? You seem to have the same issues I had when starting SW
. I also could not believe that you didn't need a filter (in the FW
sense). Many of my LFS
's told me that I would need a filter(canister, HOT etc). But I decided I'd go with the experts on the boards advice and just use LR
and a DSB
. Well it's been a little over a year and what do you know, those online posters knew what they were talking about. I have never had an issue with biofiltration. The LR
takes care of it all. Just make sure you have enough LR
(1 - 1.5 lbs per gallon) and the 10 times per gallon water movement and you'll be set.
