So you suggest 50% daily until it drops to <10?

I would do 1 large change and go from there. The nice thing is in your case is that large water changes for a small tank like yours are easy and cheap to do. I think a 50% would be a good start, personally, because the math is easy to know where your nitrate level will be.

Nitrate Level for Snails?

Well.. 50% w/c done.



I do have a question on the hermits though, in the LFS these were labelled as Red Legged Hermits, but I've noticed their yellow antennae which is making me question whether or not they're actually Scarlett Reef Hermits..



Any idea?

Well..

It's now somewhere between 5-10ppm.

I guess I'll keep it stable at this level.

1 week update:

Nitrates haven't moved an inch.
