    with that stuff you need to add about the 1/4-1/2 of the recommended amount to start and slowly add a little every week until you get up to the recommended amount.

    If you add it too fast you can bleach out your corals.... Be careful... You are producing alot of bacteria that can eat away at the zooxanthellae algea that produce the colors in your corals. Just add slowly so you do not shock your tank...Trust me i have experience with this. All of that gunk in your skimmer is all the dead excess bacteria from that reactor. I would pull out 3/4 of what you put in and add a 1/4 back once a week.

    yeah, your dose of pellets is pretty high. Start slow. If you want some more of these, I've got 2 bags I'm not using but you won't need em for some time...
