See that's the thing. I'm kind of in the dark here. When I was first buying everything, I thought that my reef master kit included tests for ammo and nitrites, but it didn't (rookie's mistake).
Anyways, I went this whole week without testing. I was changing between 25-50% of the water every other day, assuming that my ammo was probably rising. But it wasn't till today that I could get my hands on the test kit.
That's why I'm still not celebrating, but the presence of nitrates was certainly nice. Oh and I tested some of my other SW
, and it had 0 nitrates. So they weren't introduced in the water change.
