Gearing up to do 3 water changes tomorrow so I figured I'd test the water in the 60g cube. I was pleasantly surprised to see the nitrates have dropped to orange in color in the test from red a few weeks ago. This I attribute to the biopellets.
My last water change was almost 3 weeks ago, I was holding off as I was waiting for some results with the nitrates. The phosphates are also lower, not 0 around .4 but thats half what they were.
I figure a good sized water change will get the nitrates down to hopefully 10-20 and the reactor can clean up that.
Wish I had the same results in the 125g, but I think the reactor i'm using in that tank is too small. If the results continue to be good with this tank i may get a larger unit for the big tank.
