Well unless they gave you water form a cycling tank there wouldn't be ammonia or nitrite. Nitrite is the biproduct of ammonia and nitrate is the biproduct of nitrite. They were just way behind on PWC's and or general maintenance.

That's what I mean though. This is supposed to be fresh water with no ammonia, nitrite or nitrate, because there are no fish in the water to cause any if them, right? Or am I being thick and just misunderstanding what you mean? Lol

Where did you get the water from? Is it from their tank or is it RO/DI water?

I think I misunderstood you lol. This is water for a PWC ? Then it shouldn't have anything at all and that's even worse it has 40ppm nitrate in it. Sounds like tap water to me, I hope they weren't selling it as ro/di water.

Yep it is both pure ro water for top up and saltwater for pwc's.

I will call them first thing in the morning (it is late here) and see what they have to say. They may not even be aware of it

I have nurifin tap safe used for my fw fish tanks. Would this help adding some to the tank, as it is supposed to help remove metals and make tap water safe?
