    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    Thank you for the information! Since I filled the majority of the tank with RO water and cleaned out the sponges, I’m sure now the tank will be able to adjust and fix itself to get that balance. Do you leave your nitrates at 0?

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    I got RO water from my fish store down the road when I did a 80% water change. My tap is about .25-.5 ammonia and 5 nitrate as is.

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    Alright I used RO water and kept my sponge and quartz rings so I would assume minerals would be left in those along with if I added flourish liquid fertilizer. Would that do the job?

    What type of shrimp

    I found another variation, any thoughts? I’m assuming there is a brown/wild variation of neos and are lower grades

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    Currently adding water to the tank today after a 70-80% water change. The sponges in the filter have been used since cycling so the bacteria has built up. Because of that water change, you would suggest on removing those sponges and replacing them with ones that are completely new? Or keep them...

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    Alright thank you for that insight. I figured out that by tap, the ammonia is about .5 and the nitrate is 5.0. I have prime but of course that won’t clear up everything. Currently doing a 50% water change. About how long of 25% daily water changes would you suggest? Week, 2 weeks? Living in...

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    Would you recommend just cleaning out substrate and water change of 25-50% to see if it decreases?

    Is high nitrate ok for established planted tank

    So my ammonia and nitrite remains the same 0. The nitrate has been in the 40 ppm range and my fish in the tank haven’t died, the shrimp actually have grown more. I believe the spikes of the nitrate are when I use the fertilizer, which is flourish. I put in it there maybe every 3 weeks, so I...

Today I checked my water after a couple months and read 0 ppm ammonia, ph 7.6, nitrite 0, nitrate 40 ppm. I have read a few reviews and comments...

    Can cory catfish interbred with other types?

    Hello. I have a few cories, julii and pepper, and I was wondering if they can breed with different types? Julii+pepper. I have a female julii and the rest I believe are males between the pepper and the other julis. Any information on if it is possible?
