Okay well I measured the phosphates and they are at 0.25. This is what they have "always" been at. I have even put in a double dose of the phosphate absorber and it still stays there.
Any thoughts? I have started to defrost my food now and then drain it into a net over the sink again, will pay very close attention to the KH
levels and will do weekly water changes, maybe even bi-weekly ones.
I am going to replace my aquarium glass since it has a fracture in it, so would this be an ideal time to do something tricky to help eliminate the problem?
