    How much vodka do you use per gallon of water then to keep the nitrates down. I am getting ready to start up a 180 gl reef tank and would like better results this time.

    Your welcome Lairsey

    I have been using vodka in my tank for the last four years, best thing i'v used for Phosphate & Nitrate.....before that it was Red sea Nopox but that was three times the price and not as good.
