Very true I would make sure filter media is clean bioballs are clean and make sure all your livestock is accounted for. If you have a dead fish it will cause a nitrate spike

Yes the root cause has to be found. But to me its easier to see the root cause once you get the nitrates down. when they are that high its ahrd to see them go up
