On another note, and in answer to my own question, bacteria can convert the nitrAte to nitrogen gas deep inside live rock.

Nitrites are up, nitrates are still really low, so I am guessing the little buggers are working on the trites now.

I am relieved I didn't kill the tank with the accidental OD.

Should I do another (correct) ammo dose for the BB to feed on? The cocktail shrimp is about done decomposing.

Dose to 4ppm every time it goes to zero. When it processes the 4ppm to 0 nitrItes and high nitrAtes in 24 hours you are done.

Thanks. I just dosed with 1/2tsp of ammo. I'll start keeping track daily. Of course I'm going out of town next week. I might have my wife just dose daily and I will check it when I get home.

Hoorraaaay! It's processing it all to 0 in less than 24hrs. I'm heading out of town this week, so first fish in a week or two.

For a FOWLR tank the nitrAtes are fine being high, but not for a reef tank....so do I need to do an uber water change to get rid of the nitrAtes?
