I've had my tank up and running now for 6 months. I did initially start the tank with treated tap water and the switched to RO
water after initial cycle.
The problem is, even with water changes my nitrates have NEVER went down...
Params are Ammonia:0, Nitites :0, pH: 8.1, Calcium: 410, Nitates 160.
I talked with my LFS
and had them test my water since I thought maybe my test might not be working properly and it came back with the same results.
They suggested that I run a reactor with Seachems De Nitrate which I have been doing now for more than a month, still with no results.
I do have corals growing in there that seem to be doing well and growing, but the nitrates really have me worried.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to lower them?
I have tested my RO
water and the nitrates come back at 0 and TDS
is at 4.
