If you're trying to culture good or beneficial bacteria, you're probably better off with a supplement like Microbe Lift's Nite Out, Seachem Stability, or Nutrafin Cycle. I'm not sure how well this would work and really, the only things that effectively remove nitrites as far as I know are plants, water changes, and nitrifying bacteria.
