My FOWLR hoovers in the 40 range when I get lazy and miss a pwc (or 2). I don't do corals but my inverts and fish seem happy.

I have macro (well sometimes) and it grows like a weed (yea nitrates) but I get frustrated with it invading my return section etc and rip it out. Then I give in and get some more.. instead of fixing the problem with the sump baffle (there's a lesson and personal insight there somewhere)

I'd suggest maybe doing another big pwc and see if they come down. Or starting with a hardy species and not inverts since they are likely to come from a low nitrate environment if it's a good lfs.

Ok that sounds good. Thanks for all that help. I've come to learn that ocellaris clownfish are pretty hardy. Is this correct? These were two fish i planned on getting. But aside from that, i wasn't going to get any corals or inverts until my nitrates droped down to at least 15 or below. I just wanted two fish two start out with and see how they fair in the tank.

From a nitrate perspective I agree. I'd never advise any fish in a tank showing ammonia or nitrites though.

Good luck w/ it

Alright then. But also, i have been testing both ammonia and nitrites for the past two days and have not had a single bit of either of them. And i agree with you as well, no matter how little the level is, i would never put anything in the tank with ammonia or nitrites.

Thanks for you're help Captain. Appreciated very much. Thincat as well.
