Biowheels, as all other filters, do NOT remove nitrate. They all convert
ammonia TO nitrate.

>1) a nitrate test kit, and
I have an Aquarium Pharm. Dry-Tab nitrate kit, and it's useless for the low
levels of nitrate that we are shooting for. I think Chuck Gadd uses a Red
Sea nitrate kit and he's happy with it.
>2) a source for supplemental nitrate (does Seachem flourish provide this?)
Seachem Flourish does not contain nitrate.
