I was gonna get some other stuff too but I'm trying to be good. hehe...
Bio-pellets aren't necessary; GFO is better.

I run gfo now. I wanna do a biopellet setup on the 125g really bad but I hear mixed reviews on it so I figured I;d try for myself.

How do you like it? Does it reduce algae? I only advised against bio-pellets because Rob from the 55g build recently lost his SPS due to the pellets

I love my bio pellets. I just bought the new reef dynamics reactor for them. You really have to control the flow. To many people clean the water too good. You need to be able to control the tumble and the flow of water thought the system to control how good it cleans phosphate and nitrate. On my test tank it cleaned my water too good so I fed heavy to combat this. But now I will be able to control the tumble and the flow thought the system independently and this is the key. This setup is going on my display! I am able to connect the biopellet output directly to the input of my skimmer and this will stop the initial cyan outbreak.

On my test system it brought phos from 8 to .05 and nitrate from 45 to 1 or 2. This is where i like to keep it. So I was sold. Because I tend to overfeed.

It should show the discount where it would normally show the bulk buy discount but not everything is at a discount..some items the manufacturer gives at a firm price and won't budge for BRS

I am not seeing anything discounted when I log on bs not logging on. It's the same price either way. I was looking at rodi units, test kits, Hanna checkers and reagents, frag kits, salt, etc..
