cant get the level of the nitrate down.
i brought a new filter for my tank, i have had it running with the old one for two weeks, im not sure weather or not this is causing the problem or not, i have done a water change every other dsay but it doesnt seem to help.
what should i do?
Bigger water change or look for a source of high nitrate. Do you have a dead fish under a rock? are you feeding too much? is there food in the filter?
Good luck, Derby.:)
i have been doing 25% water changes and on the weekend i did a 50 %, im not over feeding as i hve only given them flake and pwrans 1ns a week. hopefully another water change will help.
i will tell you if it goes down
How Long has this tank been up and running .??
What have you got in there that you feeding Prawns ?
i got a dog face pufer and a toad fish and i a lunar wrasse and a vampire tang.
it has been runnin for a couple of years
What is the reading of your nitrate??and do you have corals in the tank? :?:
no corals the last reading was about 50 then it went down to 25 after a few water changes
finally got the level down but i lost the toad fish.
