Vodka Dosing by 'Genetics' and 'Stony_Corals' - Reefkeeping.com Here's a place for you to read about it. I've been doing this for about 4 month and dropped my nitrates from around 60 to around 5.

There are easier and safer ways to lower trates IMO..
Seems like a waste of vodka too

I don't know its pretty ease, cheaper then other solutions and according to any articles I've read about this it seems safe and alot of people are doing it. I've been doing it for 4 months with no ill effects so far
