I use ro
water and I am currently in the process of doing 15% water changes every other day to get my nitrates down b/c they are currently at 30. I also removed my biowheel in hopes that it would cut down on nitrates.
My lighting runs for 10 hours a day ( only 8 hours of full day light) and i have 192 watts running on this 33 gallon tank, should the running time be less?
The red on the sand does not easily blow off, instead it sort of clumps my sand together. Oh and I dont have a PO4
test kit, are they nessisary?
Any further help would be great cause all of the brown on the glass and red on the sand is making my tank quite ugly
Oh and on a quick other note, Last wednesday i bought a leather frag
but it did not survive and I took it out today. Could this be b/c of my Nitrates?
