Re: Seachem Denitrate
Hey Freddy, thanks for the post.
Should be little to no gas build up in your reactor but it will not hurt to put the drain toward the top or angle the reactor to allow any gas to escape. Typically the gas will be dissolved in the water and will not build up in the reactor though.
De*Nitrate does not require feeding and will be effective without the use of Stability. However, Stability contains bacteria species that will colonize De*Nitrate and consume your nitrates. Using Stability will help establish the appropriate bacteria quickly and speed up the cycling time for the media. Without Stability, it may take a little longer for the media to become effective.
While not necessary, directing the outlet to your skimmer will help to remove compounds that were not removed by the bacteria and but again, this is not necessary.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
