i did a 25% water change and tested the water and its still really high but a small impovement.

What about carbon?

could i activaite some extra carbon that would problably clear it up? last night i couldnt sleep so i tried to see how it would help if i place carbon in my tank. so i took 2 test tubes filled them up with aquarium water and tested one. It was really high (of course ). Then i took the other one a place a pinch of cardon in it. then this afternoon i test it and found that it had reduce to .25 nitrite. So should i use carbon? i know it would suck up the trace stuff too. please respond.

I think it would be a good idea. keep up with the PWC to replenish your trace .

Last night i siphon out 3/4 of the sand and found the problem. The sand was very foul dark brownish yellowish and it smelt really bad (I burned some inscest, Im sure my parents were wondering about me ). i rinse that well with some fresh water. The water is a lot cleaner maybe that cause of the carbon. And by doing this i had to do a water change which was 25%. so hopefully im on the road to recovery.

thanks for the help.
