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.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
