Quote from your other thread.....the water change did work if your readings were higher before the w.change.
I don't know enough about fertilisers to comment, but perhaps it is possible. Stupid question, but did you remember to add dechlorinator when you did the w.change?
I did add the dechlorinator. I use the hose that connects to the sink. I'll make sure to do the 24 hr tap water test. Would it be beneficial (or is there such a product) to use something that dechlorinates, and neutralizes everything all at once?
Just in the past few minutes after raising the outflow, I haven't seen the tetras at the top like they were before. Their mouths are still moving like they just swam a marathon tho...
Thanks everyone, for the quick replies!
