Got a testing kit
I just recieved my API Freshwater Master testing kit and I really like it. But I have a few questions. I have a ph reading of 7.4 on both my aquarium and water out of the tap, is this a problem? Must I get ph down to lower it to nuetral?
My next question is my rating for ammonia is 0, my rating for nitrite is 0, but my nitrate level is high 60 mg/L, How much of a water change should I do? I have been doing about 30-35% water changes of a 75 gallon aquarium about once per week lately, but before hadn't done them frequently enough.
My last and final questions are my LFS sold me Tetra EasyBalance with nitraban that is supposed to help with nitrate levels, does this stuff work? have any of you ever tried it?
Thanks in advance
