It just wont go down!
Hi everyone, havent been around for a very long time now.
Right, I have a nitrate problem and its driving me mad. Its been up at 100mg/l for a month or two now and ive been doing 20% water changes, I clean the gravel everytime, cleaned all the plants (use plastic ones) and introduced new carbon cartridges, sponge pads and even now cermic noodles (not all at the same time obviously) and nothing seems to be working. All other levels of Nitrite etc are perfect.
I have a 36 gallon tank, about 3ft wide.
I have 4 Yellow Rainbowfish, 1 Swordtail, 1 Dwarf Gourami, 2 Serpae Tetras and a Head and Tail light tetra.
I know some are meant to be kept in groups and I have had them in groups at different stages but due to death have lost a fair few. I have had the tank for 2 years.
Anyone got any ideas?
