I didn't even think of checking the NO3
in the newly ro
'd water , I will check it tonight because I just made a new batch of water last night.
Specs on the tank:
72gallon bow front, ~60lbs of regular rock for about a year now, crushed coral substrate, Fluval 404 filter, 3x Maxijet 1200's , lights are on for 7 - 8 hours a day, , no sump no fuge.
Fish: 1 bicolor dwarf angel, three green/blue chromis.
i realize that crushed coral substrate might be a place for stuff to be trapped under,even though it is pretty finely crushed but I was thinking of swapping it out for sand down the road , just need some money.
I did a good algae scraping last night and made it spotless, algae free. I said this in another post, but i'll admit that I haven't really kept up with the tank lately and have been busy with other stuff but i'm ready to get back in it. So in that time alot of junk could have built up in the filter and substrate, i've been trying to vaccum stuff out pretty well though.
