Today’s video is on Filter Socks…are they Nitrate producers like some allege them to be?
The short answer is they are no more a Nitrate producer than any other filter or medium holder you use or even the substrate you use. My video will explain why the misconceiving notion that these socks will fill your tank with Nitrates is just nonsense. If one of these socks fills your tank with Nitrates then your system is not in balance and you have more nitrates making bacteria than bacteria that will utilize Nitrates either as a foodsource or steal its oxygen from that ion.
