There is. It's not advisable with planted tanks. This is assuming that the filter has great flowing rate. Your plants will not thrive at that. In any case, your plants can absorb nitrates so they are quite useful in controlling nitrate level. However to maintain the nitrate at 10-20 ppm, you may need to monitor the level and if it drops, add potassium nitrate.
