I have had great results with a pellet reactor it however is not an overnight fix it takes a while to seed.

You also need to find the source of the issues is that overfeeding or not enough flow to keep.the tank stired up.

What size is the system and how much water you changing.

I'm not that far through yet still getting all my bits together before setting up , so just trying to get opinions on what works best , so I can plan where I'm going with things , my tank is 5' x 15" x 24" 320 l , my sump is small tho 18 x 15 x 15 .

What would be the best pellets to use in the reactor, I had been looking at the seachem denitrate , think I'll probably be looking at two reactors, one for phosphate and one for nitrate .
