If I was to start making my own bags would it be better to use carbon or some other form?

It really depends on your needs. There is many different kinds of media you can use. Keep in mind that some corals don't cope well with some media. Ei palm tree coral usually doesn't do well with phosphate removing media. I usually just use carbon. I use that example cause it happened to me. I had a phosphate spike. And there was something in the phosphate media that killed my palm tree. Can't remember what it was now happened a while ago

Wow 40 to 80ppm that's really high.. Hmm what do u mean by u only have 3 gallons ready? And ur fish will be fine.. U can also buy some filter media that absorb nitrate from ur Lfs. Even thou it's abit pricey

PWC`s are the best and most effective way to remove nitrates.
