Anyone with a planted tank using marinepure in their sump? I'm in the process of setting up my tank which will be a 125g display tank with a 30g sump. I'm picking bio media for the sump and I'm almost ready to order some marinepure (still not sure between a large block or the bag of mixed shapes). I read a few reviews on reef2reef and it sounds like marinepure completely reduced their nitrates down to zero or undetectable levels, has this been the case for anyone here, or is there a difference for saltwater vs freshwater?
The reason I ask is because my freshwater tank will be the source of an aquaponic system where we are growing small herbs like kale, cilantro, etc. I guess it's the same concept for anyone with a planted tank, but the plants will depend on the nitrates for nutrition. So will marinepure take that away from them? If so, is it better to just go with some other ceramic media?
