Another question... My tank is done cycling so I did a 10 gal WC
on my 40 gal
tank. I can't seem to get my nitrates to go down. Before my WC
it was at 40ppm, I tested it this morning after the WC
and it's still 40ppm! Did I not do a big enough WC
? I have a Fluval 306 filter canister and one 800gph powerhead. We had a protein skimmer but we took it down because we didn't like it and will be buying a different one soon.
Tomorrow we'll try and 50% WC
and see if that helps.. If not I don't know what else to do...
I had a 13 gal
tank that also had high nitrates. We upgraded because we thought getting a bigger tank would be easier to maintain but these **** nitrates will not go down. I'm starting to get discouraged and thinking I'll never have a tank with low nitrates! 😔
