Anyone Here Have Any Tests On Biohome?

    Does anyone here have any tests they (or someone else) has done on biohome or seachem matrix to see if they really do reduce nitrates? I know matrix is just low quality pumice (they have even sent out obsidian rocks in their buckets) so I doubt it's going to remove any nitrates at all. The only test on biohome I found shows that it doesn't reduce nitrates.

    I'm talking an actual controlled experiment, not something someone has in their normal tank.

    Thanks guys.

    Sorry, I don't. But I say the best way to remove nitrates is to use a lot of plants.

    Matrix is neutral. But it had a lot of surface area. Method should be to use Seachem stability with matrix. Couple that with Renew and Purigen and eventually you will have a stable tank. Provided there are enough plants to take up those nitrates. If you want to control ammonia, then seachem zeolite would do. I would avoid carbon and go for Renew.

    Thanks, but I'm not looking to buy any media, I'm simply trying to see if anyone has any studies on biohome media.

    And, if I were buying media, Matrix would be the last thing I would ever consider. Stuff is such a ripoff.
