I have just found that my source water is high in nitrates, JDM has mentioned that you may be able to suggest a filter that removes nitrates. I think the problem is recent as the last time I checked the source water it was all in the green zone on my test strips.
Thanks in advance for your help.
- I know that you're pretty familiar with the fluval HOB filters , just wanted to ask you a question. I have the C4 on my 55 and was wondering if I transferred the biological c-nodes to a 20 gallon long would that be enough to instantly cycle it? I also plan on putting floating in the 20 also to help just in case.

Posted On: 05-17-2013, 03:35 PMThanks for asking. For the most part they're doing okay (about a dozen). I do see a couple that are noticeably smaller than the others, but can't be sure if this means they'll be stunted, won't make...Liked On: 05-17-2013, 03:16 PM

Posted On: 05-09-2013, 11:31 AMWell, right now they're just tiny polywog like critters. I'm [also] looking forward to when they begin to look like angel fish.Liked On: 05-08-2013, 04:33 PM
Posted On: 05-08-2013, 03:49 PMWell the fry are up and swimming around (yesterday after the rescue many were in between wigglers and swimmers and some just seemed to lay there). There's a good two dozen there. I'm feeding them...Liked On: 05-08-2013, 01:30 PM
Posted On: 05-08-2013, 11:46 AMThis morning I found that some of the wigglers were nearly swimmers but when any strayed from the plant leaf, a parent would scoop them up and redeposit some of them back on the leaf. It looked like...Liked On: 05-07-2013, 11:32 PM
