High nitrates

This is a discussion on High nitrates within the Tropical Fish Diseases forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> So I'm confused...the nitrate reading you stated above of 60 ppm, is that the tap water or water in the tank?...

how long has your tank been established? are you cycling your tank? a spike in nitrates could be a cause of cycling...just a thought.
