Has anyone ever used this filter system for nitrate removal?
Aquaripure Nitrate Filter
seems to good to be true !!
you should post this in the aquaripure section. as this is one of the forum sponsors nobody is going to bash it.
OK I thought I saw it at one time listed to the right as an add..
but I have to ask has anyone used one?
I have done religious water changes.. ( it promotes healthier fish )
I just checked my nitrate level just earlier.....and its at 0
so I must have to ask... if your doing water changes then whats the need?
now I am wondering this because I will be building my 210 gallon soon.....
still working on were its going to be placed.. ( making Room ) lol
but I might need such a filter in the help of obtaining clean water conditions for
the Discus that I want to raise....
Fine I won't bash it then....:-?.
There section on it saving you money is really skewed, to the point that it is funny.
The thing does remove nitrates though. I somewhat understand how they work. One thing though I don't get.... they obviously contain a anaerobic chamber and support anaerobic bacteria. But how does one clean or maintain that chamber? If you expose it to the air you kill the anaerobic bacteria. Yet if you don't maintain chamber wouldn't non-organics still build up in it?
IMO if you want 0 nitrates get a RO system.
the whole thing around that filter is so you have to do less water changes, but concerning the item mentioned wont give my opinion on this. again you should really post in the aquaripure section of the forum.
The pic on your advitar at the bottom?
what fish is that?
is it fresh water? looks like a catfish?
whats the name of it so I can look it up.
The fish that mikaila pictured is Pseudomugil gertrudae
Theres no need for nitrate filters on freshwater tanks, nitrates aren't dangerous until you go past the 400ppm mark and I don't know of anyone with nitrate that high.
Thats good to know
I know I have never had a problem with Nitrates with my tanks....
but there is always a first for everything I guess..
I know the advertisement states for Fresh water and Salt water tanks
thanks for the info.... appreciate it.
I just looked him up and he is very nice looking fish he does not get very big I think 2 inch or 3 ???
do they prefer Sand or Gravel?
