Nick (Myrtle Beach, SC) writes to Bob about:
Denitrating Devices

Hi Mr. Goemans, I'm a saltwater fish enthusiast, and have an idea that may work to reduce nitrates. It first involves building a chamber, which would be nothing more than a four foot section of 3" pvc that is filled with 2 -4 mm aragonite substrate and uses a 3" adapter on one end and on the other end, a 1 1/2" adapter. Then pump water into it through the 3" adapter and let it more slowly flow out the 1 ½" adapter, which would establish the presence of anaerobic bacteria, which in turn would reduce the nitrates! Is this something people are already doing or, would it really work? But to more.
