My tank is a bit overstocked so I use another product, Matrix, which I put in a canister filter to help keep the nitrates down to pretty much nothing (regular water changes help a lot too of course).
Often when I have to change out the Matrix for a fresh load, I'll use this product to help keep nitrates down until the biological process of the Matrix is up and running, which can take up to 2 weeks sometimes.
My experience has been that this product works best when your nitrate levels are not too far above 10.0 probably--at that level, it quickly reduces nitrates down to almost 0 if not 0.
So, if your tank's nitrates are way up there, like 40, this thing is not going to do much. You really need to do a really big water change if your nitrates are at that level (and of course, DON'T USE TAP WATER, use RODI filtered water) and THEN start adding this product. At that point, if your nitrates are fairly low after the water change, it will KEEP them at a fairly low point, as long as you are dosing the tank per instructions.
If your tank's nitrates tend to escalate, you might look at correcting (or to your best ability correcting) the source of it.
But this product is a good one to have on hand and I very much recommend it!
