Yeah I know! That part I am worried about. I know the Nitrates are not coming from my water I have tested the mix everytime I do a water change. What I have done to battle this problem was add about 8 macro Algaes to the tank, plus put 5 mangroves in my overflow. Doubled my rock from 50lbs to 100lbs added about 100 snails of various kinds, some sand for stirring sand and the rest clean up. I am not sure how to talkle the issue of how to figure out where the Nitrates are coming from at this point. Oh and I also replaced my two Maxi Jet 900's with 2 Hydor Karlia number 2's. All filters, pumps, skimmer has been cleaned all hoses have been replaced. What else can i do?
