Nitrate in Tap Water - What to do...?
The mystery of my tank cycle is becoming more clear now. I'm three weeks into the new setup and with only slightly increased levels of ammonia and nitrate up till now, I thought I was doing good. Yesterday I checked my levels and did the partial change and checked again and the nitrate was actually higher! I called my local petstore and was recommended to test my tap water. Guess what? Very high nitrate levels.
What are your recommendations for this? Do I have to buy Spring Water or do a R-O unit? What do I need to do to get my nitrate levels down in my tank?
Thanks so much!
