Nitrate Test Results
Good Morning Guys ,I had a question ,Now my tank as been running with live rock in it for over a week now and this is the 1st nitrate test i've done .using API salt test kit ,my nitrate level say in between 5 and 10 PPM to be on the safe side ,but i'm leaning towards 10 PPM is my water Cycled so fast ,i did use all RO water to start.
What are your ammonia and nitrites?
Ammonia is 0-PPM nitrate is 0-PPM
k ,i tested that also its holding at 8.2 PH and holding.
Darn :frustrated: Ive tried my ammonia is 0-PPM but my Nitrate still after water changes is around 40-PPM
anything else i can do still wait ,The tank is about 1 1/2 month old
Do you have sufficient amounts of live rock? The Anaeorobic bacteria that forms there is helpful in breaking down Nitrates.
Excess nitrates also come from overfeeding. You may want to cut down on your feedings and see if that helps.
