I think i was feeding them too much. I have cut back to once a day. I took my water to my lfs
and it tested different than my master test kit (forgot the name), She was using "Fast Test" with the little packets. Her test showed things were fine except the ammonia was a little high. I ordered a "Fast Test" kit for myself. That's strange that two kits can be so consistently different. The other question I had was the white particle debris that continually is being emitted from the clams and turkey wings that came on my tbs rock. I ordered one of those H.O.T. magnum Pro hob
filters that you can put a pleated cartridge in. I am thinking that might do the trick. I was thinking that was what was making my nitrates high, but i guess it was my test kit.
