I have the large 2 little fishes reactor laying around. I was curious if this a reactor that could be used for bio pellets? Is there mods in order to make it better? What type of pump should I use?
I am just exploring the idea of bio pellets not sure I am going to use them for sure. I have recently had a diatoms outbreak and I am not sure what from. I also like to feed a lot! (I think we all do)

Thanks to everyone is advance!

Can it be done? yes. A quick google search turned up several examples. The sponges have to go and you cut knitting mesh to fit top and bottom. The overall consensus seems to be that it will work unless you need a large amount of pellets. Maintaining the proper flow/tumble seems to become difficult as the reactor becomes full.

I saw people recommend everything from a maxijet 1200 up to a mag5 pump.

I searched for it (not sure what search engine and found nothing). I think a larger pump is going to be needed. A mag 5 may not be enough. Thanks ill try Google!
