    i have a lightly planted 84x0x24 display tank and have been having issues with high nitrates which ive beet battling with for a while. i have slight readings in my tap water which i filter through hma. well i heard of a product called szat clear water. all i can say is it is amazing after 24 hours in my external it has lowered the nitrates readings to 10 ppm from 80ppm and my water is now crystal clear like gin, if i didnt have an air stone running you would swear there was no water in the tank.
