i was searching on methods and chemicals to help reduce nitrate levels, and I came across this article.
http://saltaquarium.about.com/od/nitratecontrol/ss/sbsnitratereduction.htm

has anyone tried this method before? I didn't see any feedback from the article.

i have been doing smaller 1 to 2 gallon water change every other day for the past week to reduce my nitrate levels (20gallon tank). I've gotten it down to around 70 ppm , and i was searching for the right type of chemical/product to buy to help.

this method seems quite extreme. thoughts??

@ 70 ppm... do 50% water changes every other day. 1 to 2 gallons in a 20 isn't going to change much.

You can do larger changes daily. Please update us on what is in the tank and what it is that you think is causing the nitrates to be at this high level. I don't remember if this is an established tank or a new setup that is cycling. The required actions may be different based on the above info.
