Also, for whatever it's worth, my other tank (approx 23 gal) with only one Blue Gourami and 3 oto cats always stays just at 10 ppm nitrates, and I figure it's because I don't tend to over feed (with only one fish that needs to "eat"). It also has plants, so I guess I still over feed the other tank. I want to get to where I see less nitrates in the larger tank, and think that perhaps buying more "stuff" will get me there. I'm open to doing that if it will help.
