    Firstly I'd like to give three cheers to Marco of the Water Boy!!!

    Yesterday, I received a package containing my order of N & P Reducing Bio-Pellets, I am yet to state the results as it's only been running for less than 24hrs. Together with the Bio-pellets, I got a dual reactor, 1 for the Bio-Pellets & 1 for carbon. I've heard that running GAC can make a huge difference in the water clarity but boy was I surprised this morning, when I say crystal clear, I mean Swarovski Crystal clear is now what the water in my DT looks like!!!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    A big thank you Marco for all your efforts in helping us guys in this hobby, keep up the good work and don't stop at what you're doing. :yeahdude:
