Seaweed in tank for makeshift refugium?
I have a 5 gallon nano aquarium, and a 44 gallon with 10 gallon refugium... But I was worried about nitrates and nitrites in my 5 gallon nano aquarium. I currently have 2 pinfish and 6 or 7 ghost shrimp that seem to be doing fine so far, but I can't exactly set up a refugium for the 5 gallon.
All I have in the 5 gallon for filtration is a waterfall filter with a simple mesh filter.
Could I get some sargassum weed, graceful redweed (Gracilaria spec.), or maybe some shoal grass (Halodule wrightii), turtle grass (Thalassia testudinum), or manatee grass (Syringodium filiforme) to act as nitrate filters?
