Hi I have a problem with my nitrate.

I try to do water changes every week at about 20%, my fish eat all the food I put in the tack with in three minutes and the water I put in has no nitrate. Yet the nitrate levels are still high. I have some fish that are vigorous plant eaters and if I put plats in there they don’t last three day without starting to rot.

Has any one got any ideas how I can get the nitrate down?

Any help appreciated.

Michael :-D

What do you define as high?

If you can also let us know your figures for Ammonia and NitrIte also.

It’s still 100mg/l or very red. I have not used any Nitrasafe dose that work? Or I was thinking for getting a breding net and putting some plants in that so the fish cant eat them do you think this will work?

A couple of products that I have used are ok.

NitraZorb is one that is easily available in this country.

Allgone is available from the states or online at www.allgone.com

I have found both to be useful.

Regarding the plant idea maybe Rose the resident plant expert can advise you there. :rolleyes:

Nitrazorb works well for also and is rechargable.

My levels were allways into the 100's - out the tap at 60ish but Nitrazorb now keeps the levels arround the 20-30 mark
