    I am considering getting a nitrate reactor. Can anyone suggest any brands or products?

    I have a separate filter tank that has a big clump of caulerpa in it. That's not exactly what I meant. I was think of something a little more like this, but a little cheaper: Korallin BioDenitrator w/o Pump

    I just checked this thing out and I am very interested in it. I see that it has carbon and I did look up GFO since I had no idea what that was and see that it removes Phosphate but what about nitrates? Does it remove those?

    Can you substitute the carbon for a nitrate reducing media do you think?

    I don't think it removes nitrates, but you can use any media you want in the reactor, as long as you can get the flow correct.
