I looked at the sponsor ad website for this denitrator above/below. Anyone have one of these? Seriously, zero nitrates? Would my plants get enough nutrients?

Plants require nitrates as a source of nitrogen. In highly lit aquariums, people go out of their way to dose nitrates, as low levels will tend to lead to algae problems, poor growth, etc.

I wouldn't advise you purchase/use one.

Seems to be mostly reef set ups pictured on their site - all well and good but different to freshwater planted aquariums in that 0 nitrates are less easily attained and much more desirable...

Be easier just to plant enough that the plants make your nitrate hit 0.

OK, that's what I always thought, just checking to see if I Laughing lost my mind.
