activated carbon helps remove organic contaminants from water, thus helping the bacteria with the bio load (nitrites included, but not nitrates)

Carbon removes pretty much most things from the water. If you are planning to try this for your nitrite problem, it should help you out, but remember, if you treat for anything with medications, you will need to remove the carbon whilst you treat, or the carbon will just strip out the meds.

Hi tankgirl,
You might of read the articles on activated carbon already but, if not, it will help in giving you a better insight as to what activated carbon is capable of doing, if you do. As far as I am aware, the only thing carbon wont remove from water is salt.* Here is the the <a href='http://allfishforums.com/index.php?showtopic=270' target='_blank'>link</a> for the articles. Please, if you haven't read the articles, please do,

*Includes mineral salts

From what I have read from AC manufacturer websites none claim to remove nitrites or nitrates, some claim it "may" reduce levels slightly but is poor at this task. With that said, IMO it should be used. It does help keep the water clean in appearance, and efficiently removes dissolved organics. There are products that claim to remove or reduce nitrites and nitrates efficiently, filter media type. I have not researched them because I have not needed to for any reason. One thing that does work is a quality water conditioner like Prime by Seachem or Amquel. They remove chlorine, chloramine and detoxify ammonia and nitrites. It is OK to double dose them durring a PWC if you have extreme conditions, such as establishing your cycle or if your tap water has excessive levels. I think that Prime may be used up to 5 times the dose safely. This is also an option besides the tablesalt, but tablesalt is usually on hand, and little cost. Besides it tastes good on hot buttered popcorn :P

as mentioned above (somewhere) it does nothing with the nitrAtes, but does help with the nitrItes.

There is still no exact Crocs Shoes statement about the origin of the word &quot;Black Friday&quot;.Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot The legendary law was that the Philadelphia police created such a word with a negative meaning in the 1950s.Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Black After Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, due to the annual Army/Navy American Football Tournament held in Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot Philadelphia on Saturday, hordes of people gathered in the city on Friday, and the stores used this opportunity to offer great merchandise to attract people to shop.Coach Logo Monogram Shoulder Bag In Black What the police are facing is a long, busy job. It was not until the 1980s that Black Friday began Coach Logo Monogram Hobo Bag In Coffee to win a broader and better reputation.
But the origins of Cyber Monday are clearer and only appeared a decade ago.Coach Logo Charm Hobo Bag In Rose The term was coined in 2005 by the National Retail Federation to describe Monday after Thanksgiving.

Retailers are also beginning to listen to shopper feedback.
Today, it is common for retailers to NIKE KD 8 Breast cancer Shoes launch the so-called Black Friday “Open the Door” on the Internet.
Most sales are completed in less than 24 hours
One of the most distinctive features of Cyber Monday may Nike Lebron Soldier 10 EP Shoes black yellow be the transitibility of its transactions, especially compared to Nike Lebron Soldier 10 X Shoes black gold Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Most of the transactions on Cyber Monday ended on NIKE Lebron James 9 Soldier Sprite the same day.
There are more &quot;instantaneous&quot; offers on Cyber Monday,Nike Kyrie Irving 2 blue yellow such as Amazon's lightning discount. Whether using a laptop, a mobile phone or a tablet device, consumers often stare at the screen Kyrie Irving Shoes because the merchant offers are short and the buyers compete fiercely.
Online sales on Cyber Monday are the hottest
Cyber Monday is the largest online Cheap Nike Lebron 15 shopping day of the year, generating $3.45 billion in sales last year, an increase of more than 12% from the same period last year.

Mobile shopping accounted for 47% of retail site visits and 31% of sales.
Different stores will shine
Black Friday is usually dominated by retailers such as Best Buy,Men's Crocs Crocband Flip White Kohl's, and Target, and on Cyber Monday, people will see that some lesser-known businesses are more attractive to consumers. .Flip Flops For Women Stores like Crocs and Levi have offered real discounts. So don't be surprised if you find Clogs For Womensomething unexpected and cheap.
Fashionista loves Cyber Monday
Just like the Olympic season, each shopping festival Flip Flops For Men has different shopping activities. During Thanksgiving and Black Friday, it is more suitable for buying electronic products, and Cyber Monday is reflected in other products.Women's Crocs Baya Clog Pepper The specials for clothes and shoes are good, and retailers will, in many cases, launch unsold Black Friday offers, and fight again.
