    This is interesting as it doesnt seem to affect the entire water column like vodka or other carbon dosing but is concentrated in an almost aerobic container as opposed to a denitrification filter any one have opinions about it?

    Interesting... however, from their website:

    whilst one or more of these polymers contain carbon (as all plastics do...), we don't know that else is contained in these "bio-degradable" polymers, and without knowing a lot more, I would be very hesitant to use such a product in my tank. Also, the website does not give any indication of cost - I suspect a bottle of vodka would be much cheaper than the number of these pellets required to have the same effect, so I will just stick to the proven for the short to medium term. If this stuff really works well, and once other hobbyists have played around with this product for a few years, and have reported positively on it, I will consider using it.
