Tetra EasyBalance Plus 500 ml
Excellent for Nitrate Reduction
After testing the water in my freshwater aquarium, I found that my nitrate was up to 40 ppm and knew that I needed to lower it before it got worse. However, at the time I had no running water in my house and therefore couldn't simply do a water change. Hoping to keep the levels under control, I picked up a bottle of Tetra EasyBalance+ that claims to reduce nitrates by converting them into nitrogen gas, despite my skepticism from reading online reviews that denied its effectiveness. I followed dosing instructions exactly, and two days later I again tested my nitrate levels and found that they were down to just 5 ppm!
As is apparent by these test results, this product is effective for reducing nitrates. I have not tested its effectiveness as a pH buffer or phosphate reducer, but it's certainly well worth your money simply for its work with nitrates!

This stuff helps control nitrates in my 55 gallon goldfish tank where the high bioload makes nitrates rise.

I have been using this for years.
I have a 55 gal with Endler's Livebearers and a 29 gal with "Feeder Goldfish (plane ole Comet Goldfish which I prefer ;)
I only do a water change 3-4 times a year and use Tetra EasyBalance Plus (usually) regularly...
My Endler's are reproducing and the Goldfish growing.
Our tap water does not always give a good result with the water change and that is the reason I use East Balance !
Also, Drs. Foster and Smith have the best prices I have been able to find and that is a big : )
