Does this being patient method work?

Recommended Posts

First post 😁 I wanted to convert a long-time fish tank over to raising shrimp, but the nitrates are close to 100. Right now, the tank is heavily planted, but no creatures aside from some snails. I'm not doing anything but changing water every week or two weeks. If I simply continue this path, will the plants eventually reduce the nitrates down to acceptable levels? I don't want to uproot them to do a really thorough gravel vacuuming, if I can help it. Thanks for any advice!
