i use zeolite for chemical filtration in many of my tanks
but zeolite has to be used with care
zeolite traps nitrates and nitrites in your tank water, but if ever salt is introduced to your tank, salt replaces nitrates and nitrites and all that displaced nitrates and nitrites get into to your tank and instant ammonia bomb
so before using salt in your tank, remove all the zeolite and then dose salt
and zeolite has to be rechrged every once in a while, that is remove it and put it in a bucket of water and add salt to the bucket and keep it so for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with freshwater and then reintroduce to the filter

Zib, Thanks for quick responce.
Are you using Zeolite in Saltwater aquarium or freshwater? I need it for my discus tank. I think it will be beneficial when I goes out of city for 5-10 day. During these days it will be absorb nitrates. After coming back I will be remove it from aquarium.
One more question.. From where can I got Zeolite?
