Nev (screwloose) has had great success with these so far, and he was the one who made my mind up to try this approach. I only chose the pearls as they had a better write up so to speak, and normally a better write up means a better product. However, I have no real idea of what to really expect. I suppose I am looking for an answer to high Nitrates and Phosphates and I believe that the Pearls will achieve this.
I know there is a huge whoo hah on the price difference, but not in a horrible way, more of a questioning type way, as to why, and the general feeling I get is that they are genuinely a better product. The snag is I am comparing my experience to a guy (Nev) who has a twice the size tank as myself, thousands of SPS unlike me, and about 18 years more experience in Marines than I. So this is a learning curve in every respect. I really want to concentrate on SPS but have struggled so much keeping the tank levels in check. Hopefully, with the Pearls I have now combatted the Phosphates and the Nitrates.
At least you have also solved the age old problem of lowering your Nitrates, and hopefully, your tank will continue to thrive. Keep us informed.
