Can I just put these pellets in a chamber in my sump or is a reactor required?

bio pellets? pretty sure you have to have them in a reactor

They need to tumble to function correctly. So a reactor is your best bet.

So like you could make one by putting them in a bottle in the tank with air stone at the bottom

I don't think air alone would be able to make them tumble but idk. You could always try.

Well... I think the idea is to offer the pellets a little more flow than just air bubbles... I have a maxijet 1200 on mine .. Also a little more than just a bottle. I took an old ro canister I had lying around, changed the fittings from 1/4 to 3/8 and put the media in a refillable insert.

I'm curious what other products guys are using for bio load? I've heard of guys using live rock, but that doesn't make sense to me considering there is probably 3-4x the amount of live rock in the DT, so not sure how it would really help increase the bio load that much.

Correct. I have one that I would like to sell. 2 little fushes reactor and I already have the filters for bio pellets. All you will need is a pump.

You wiuld need a lot if air in order to tumble the bio pellets.

Could come up with a mod to this on a 10g tank and easily tumble media depending on how heavy it is.

Remember when fluidized sand hang on the back filters first got popular for freshwater?
