It will remove organic ammonia, nitrItes, and nitrAtes, so you may need to dose nitrAtes. It won't remove ferts, however.

I use Purigen but I don't does any nitrates and I have no problem keeping it at 5 ppm. So someone who does does will probably not have trouble keeping it higher if need be.

I was told to use it to get rid of the tannin in my tank but I have not been able to find it anywhere but on line.
