I purchased a test kit for magnesium, calcium, Ph and Nitrate. I also was told bu my local shop to purchase the 2 ocean blend bottles. In the test kit come some supplements. What do they do and do I use them? I also dont know how to read my nitrate level. There are 2 numbers on the color card. Please help.
1st thing is don't dose anything you don't test for...so I wouldn't worry about those small bottle of supplements. I'm not fmailiar with the store bought ca
supplements, but they should say how much of the product is needed to raise the level. It might say something like "use 1 cap full to raise ca
in 50g of water". The nitrate kits has 2 ranges. Follow the instructions and use either the high or low range and read the chart according to the range you picked.
My other readings are: No3 0.05, Ammonia 0.0, PH .02 Magnesium 1000 calcium is 450.
Your mag is a little low. It should be around 1350. What is your alk
? Your ca
is good, but you need to balance the ca
and mag for best results. The link Mike posted has lots of good info.
