Im very new and here is what i got so far:
Im currently building a 30g tank that will be connected to a 20g sump.
Im running the 20g tank with live rock that i bought from someones aquarium and some from the store.. Full of small crawlies...
I have a pepermint shrimp , 4 snails , 3 hermits, and i can see some worms in the live sand (live sand and arrogate mix)
When i test my water here is what i get every time..
Almost no ammonia -lowest reading
Almost no nitrite - lowest reading
The ph runs between 8-8.5
And my nitrate always on 20-40 <<<
What can i do to lower this thing?
I do water changes almost twice a week
And i was thinking to buy this green algee that said to lower nitrate.. Cant remember the name..
What can i do to lower nitrate down to acceptable level?
