My tap water usually has around 5-7 ppm
nitrates. Not too high, but I had an idea to reduce it a bit since I normally let my new water outgas in buckets to let the ph settle before a pwc
Lately, I've just been doing water changes and refilling buckets right afterward, so the water sits for a whole week.
I have an extra spice shaker and some seachem matrix. I thought about drilling a hole in the bottom for an airline and putting matrix inside it. If I run this in the bucket constantly, would it eventually help reduce nitrates in the source water?
If not, this idea might make a good filter for a qt tank, or a nano shrimp tank.
