i just got my friends fowlr
setup and have had it running at my house for a week now and he has had it running for close to 2 years now. My amonia and nitrites are at 0ppm my ph is 8.2 but my nitrates are at 80ppm.I've done 3 water changes this week and it hasn't lowered it at all.
its a 65g tank with a metal halide light, live rock and live sand and a 20g sump. i do not have a protein skimmer yet but will be getting 1 soon
i was wondering if theres a way i can lower the nitrates to add 1 or 2 clownfish just so i dont have a empty tank to look at.
And what would be a good nitrate ppm
to add the clowns at? i know its ideal to be at 20 and below
please help me out i should be getting my skimmer in a week
