It shouldn't complicate things at all, just something to bear in mind as you test through your nitrate spike, and as your levels even off after cycling - be glad it's only 10ppm, and only nitrates! You may find that number changes throughout the year - it's always a good idea to keep an eye on parameters in your tap (or rainwater, if that's what you'll be using!). Around here, the nitrates are normally at zero, but if we've gotten a lot of rain, they'll rise - especially in the springtime, when everyone is busy dumping ferts into their gardens. . . some people report ammonia in their tapwater as well, so always good to give it a test every few months!
