I did a water change this week a stirred up the sand a lot when I was sucking up water. I went to do all my checks after the water change and my nitrates were through the roof. I have never had high nitrates before so I did another water change it dropped it to 40 I am going to do another tomorrow when I get home from work I think its less then 40 the color wasn't exact. I was wondering what other ways could I keep my nitrates low? I know water changes but would a skimmer help me with that as well? The tank looks really good tonight after the change. The coral are still open and the fish are active. I put a back of carbon in the water to help out with it, is there anything else I should look into?
