^^^ thank you. a few days ago, my nitrates were at 10, now they are at 20. what is the reason for this?
i am trying to read up as much as i can for understanding cycling. so far i have... ammonia>nitrite>nitrate. nitrite breaks down ammonia, nitrate breaks down nitrite.
i just dont get why my nitrates increased and my nitrites have always stayed the same.
ps- when i picked up all that live rock in the beginning, there must have been a small small frag on it, when my lights are off... the bright purple/red reef expands his white tentacles. when the light is on, he shrivels back up. he is very small, about the size of this...O
