yeah please. i also try many different models in the past. and now i run lfs and still no easy solution
for saltwater biopellet is excellent solution.
but these don't work for freshwater.
i like to introduce many many many plants, but this still just help not the solution.
i think reactor with anaerobic zone can work very well though.
thx for sharing

Best and most economical way to remove Nitrate is to do water change. Good for the fishes in term of growth as u remove anti growth homones also. Not worth trying all sort of products, wc is still the best. If the set up is outdoor, then other wise, heavy planting is a good option.

k1 media wont remove nitrate.. they will convert your ammonia to nitrite then to nitrate.. for reducing nitrate u will need to run a media under very low flow (150 - 200l/hr) and in places with low oxygen level.
