    Hi Ocean - I would say between 10 and 15 metres. Look, the idea in a denitrator, is to have the aerobic bacteria strip out and use up ALL the oxygen in the water, up to a stage where the an-aerobic bacteria can take over. You should remember that the water-flow speed/volume also makes a huge difference. It should be up to 3 drops a second, I think. Have a look at ManderinMan's tank thread - he did some really in-depth study of a denitrator coil, perhaps PM him or ask him what his thoughts are on this....

    Good luck mate!

    I read a bit about them and got the idea that most of the working ones use 30m pipe. Also started one a few days ago and used 30m of 10mm pipe to increase thi area inside the pipe. Will it work? I DONT KNOW.
