Do more or bigger water changes. That will keep them down, or you can add some live plants. I wouldn't go with chemicals.

Agreed. Whether for SW or FW, I think there are better ways of dealing with nitrate issues. Can you give us some details on your tank and why you are looking for nitrate removal?

i have not nitrate problems at the moment. i just read the advert on this site and thoght it sounded good. less water changes would save time and money. which is something i dont have loads off. dont get me wrong i love my new fish and would do eny thing for them including changing water after a 12 hour shift.

You first need to tell us aboout your tank.
FW or SW?
How many gallons/ litres is the tank?
How long has it been up and running with fish?
Type filter?
What are the current water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, salinity, temp, calcium and alkalinity. Please post numbers of results.
What else is in the tank (livestock and equipment)?

What is the nitrate problem you are having? What are your nitrate numbers?
How often do you do a partial water change and how much water do you change each time?
What type of food are you feeding (frozen [what?], flake [what?], freeze dried [again, what?])?
Are you adding any supplements?
If so, what, how much and how often?

For a FO tank, PWCs are your best choice.
