    What is Zeolite filtration and can it be used in a nano tank?

    Right, i have moved this to the appropriate forum .....

    eolites form part of the so called LNS school of thought, and are a key element to this although they can be used without the traditional LNS additives.

    essentially zeolites absorb ammonia and form part of a cycle in LNS systems

    the short answer is yes they can be used in Nanos's the long answer is be very carefull about using zeolites if you dont understand the LNS side of things properly... read up in this section of the forum and i am sure it will be a little clearer

    Yes, using a Zeolith type system is very possible with nano tanks.

    I use the ZEOvit method on my 12g system (currently offline now due to pending move).
