As far as what I have been told the Nitrates can not go to 0 without PWC. I would suspect a flawed reading on the one where it went up or on the one where it went down.

I purchased some very nice cured live rock and transported for about 1-1/2 hours in nothing but a cooler. Had almost no cycle. After waiting for about 3 weeks, I finally dosed some pure ammonia and bingo, everything read as if it was a two or three year old tank.

Since my tank is a birthday present to my wife, everything I spend going forward is just an extension of my love for her right?
