    I know there are some plants out there that can reduce
    the nitrates. Does anybody know what plants?

    They all do.. :)

    But a nice, easy to grow one would be hornwort.

    You can leave it to float in your tank, or anchor it in the substrate if you like..

    Hornwort is a good option from what I've seen. And I really like the look of it.

    Pretty much any plant will do that. The faster growing plants will soak more Nitrate than slow ones to facilitate their growth. Water Sprite, Hornwort, and Giant Hygro are all fast growing and relatively easy to keep.

    Yes- any plants will do. Basically, they act as mini biological filters, just as those that grow on land do. If taken care of, they can only enhance the health of the tank and if you select the right plants taking care of them should not be all that time consuming.

    Here's a great site:

    Good luck.

    I put 2 hornworts in my tank a little over a week ago, and its grown a fair bit since then. Think it may be one of those you need to prune a fair bit. The fish though do like it.
