https://mdshop.us/Lower_Nitrates Keeping nitrate under control has always been a concern with reef aquarists. Nitrate is the end-product of nitrification via your biological filtration, so it is continually added to your aquarium water.

For many, it may seem like a constant battle to keep nitrate under control. But the good news is there are many proven ways to minimize nitrate build-up.

So here's what you need to know to take control of nitrates in your reef tank.
