Bud, do you have anything that will absorb the nitrates?

I'm not crazy about the filter you're using. I typically use the HOB style filters. In tank ones are troublesome to maintain.

sorry i never answered your question form your first post on this thread, yes i have an air stone and i did throw it in the tank.

i don't think i have anything that will absorb the nitrates...what could?
and i really dont like the filter either, but its all i have....for now!
