DIY Nitrate Filter Idea
On both my 46 and 15 gallon tanks, I have an HOB filter. Since I am experiencing problems with nitrate in the 46 gallon, I was thinking of putting bamboo in the HOB filter. What I wuld do is put the roots in the place with water and keep the leaves above the water. Would this be helpful in the removal of nitrate? I'm sure it would look cool.
Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

At best they'll help a little. The downside to doing something like this is that to control nitrates naturally requires a tank over-run with plants and only a few fish. A few plants will consume some nitrates, but you're not going to control your nitrates with them.

The only things that happen quickly in an aquarium are bad things.
