Seachem denitrate: does it work?????

I have a nitrate issue and was wondering if this product works. How do you run it? Is a reactor the best place to run it? Does it need replacing??

Dont waste your money. Go for a denitrator from aquapure. You will never have to worry about nitrates again.

I have used instant ocean's natural nitrate remover (or reducer? i forget). Took my nitrates down from 20 to consitently between 2.5 and 5. Before that, no matter what I did, I could never get them below 20.

Do you only use it once or continue to dose??? Do you need to turn protein skimmer off?

I continue to dose half the recommended amount weekly when I do my water change. I don't turn the skimmer off. The skimmer works in conjuction with it to remove organics.

I tested Seachem Pond Matrix (almost the same as denitrate) in a 2 month time period in freshwater. It does not work. If it did work, then I was not able to notice any measurable differences.

Aquipure nitrate removal???

Vinegar dosing will bring it down. So will big water changes and a good maintenance schedule
