Nitrates not only don't hurt a planted tank, we have to add nitrates or the plants die, assuming we have more than very low light. These planted filters are good for fish only tanks, but, in my opinion do not benefit a planted tank. Of course, if they look good, or grow good strawberries, etc. they are worthwhile, and you just add enough nitrates to the aquarium to feed both sets of plants.
