Finally got the nitrates to 0!!!! The denitrator is about 2 months old and I believe the bacteria colony has finally matured. I have not done a water change since the start, but I do vacuum the bottom. The only other filtration used is a micron filter pad and carbon / phosphate bag.

My inhabitants:
10 glass cat fish (sensitive to water quality, looking great)
10 black skirt tetra
40 black neon tetra
10 black emperor tetra
20 neon tetra
2 killi fish
1 pleco
1 Chinese algea eater
1 Siemese algea eater

I would assume when vaccuming the bottom that water is removed and then replaced?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

It was vacuumed, and by gravity it was passed through two 100 micron filter pads and carbon, then fed back into the sump. Since the sump pumps water back to the display above, I can vacuum as much as I want. I did this technique to ensure that the vacuuming did not contribute to the nitrate decrease, but then realized that it was highly effective and easy, so I decided to add it to my routine.

You make one hell of a device there! I don't know what is in there, but my nitrates went from 40 ppm to 0 pp in 2 months, no water changes, fully stocked tank. Very pleased! This was just a test, I have something bigger in mind, big tuna comes to my mind!

Aquaripure

I keep hearing about the cost of an Aquaripure being expensive and how you can remove nitrates by water changes. A water change big enough to lower ( not remove ) nitrates does not come cheap- salt being very expensive. I don't have room for masses of water waiting round to do water changes. At best a partial water change will only DILUTE nitrates. An Aquaripure will REMOVE nitrates for ever.
