@johnbirg Quick question, I am wanting to start using Pristine as well but I need to keep my nitrates up, do you notice a significant drop in nitrates when using Pristine?johnbirg said:Hi and welcome to fishlore!
I use pristine at every weekly water change. No ill effects on plants and definitely saves me having to vacuum the gravel. Pristine only has bacteria which work on any accumulated debris in the gravel and convert it into nitrate just like the BB in the filter. You can also use API stress-zyme but I prefer pristine.
