Hey Chris, I decided to try a block of it in my frag tank since I only have room for live rock in the sump. Haven't had a chance to put it in the sump yet though.

Agree with all said here, seems to do what it is supposed to, though I wouldn't call it a nitrate control method. Had it in my sump for a while with no negative results as I pulled a bunch of rock out of the DT.

Think of it as a some of the most 'surface area' rock you buy as a place for bacteria to live.

Ok. For tanks with minimal rockscape be a good use?

Yes, very much so IMHO. I added the block as I wanted to significantly reduce the live rock in the tank to achieve a specific look I was going for. I added the block, gave it a while, then piece by piece have pulled rock out letting the block take the rock's place as a bacteria zone.
