Throw it in the garden. Rtn can set off a chain reaction, not to mention the smell of dying acros is horrible. I remember when my meltdown happened - the whole place stunk! :-(

Hey, did you do any chances with biopellets? What is a flow rate thru the reactor are they tumbling well?

I changed the reactor they were running in and the flow rate was a bit better, they tumble ok but not as well as i'd like

flowrate is around 600lph, its a tunze compact pump

No they didnt, when i removed them from the old reactor i rinsed them in RO/DI water

Update for those interested, the main colony spent two days in the garden and is now soaking in a small bucket of old tank water, ill then transfer it to my drum of old rock thats "cooking" at the moment.

The frags I made are all doing fine, no sign of any tissue loss on them.

Biopellets have been removed for now and will be doing some large volume water changes today and tomorrow (30% today 20% tomorrow)
