Canister Filter Media?

Is there a filter medium that assists with the control of Nitrates? I'm not going to be able to do a sump for my 75 gallon and wondered if there were any other options to control this without spending a fortune on live rock.

Thanks and God bless,

The joy of the Lord is my strength!

Only bikers know why dog's hang their heads out of the window!

75 gallon (finally got water in it in late June)
40 lbs aragonite select sand
25 lbs live rock
10 lbs of base rock added 7-6-05
2 x Penguin 330 w/bio wheel
NO 40 watt Powerglow
