well my nitrate is 10ppm while my ammonia is 0 and my nitrite is 0. PH is 8.3 i haven't tested phosphates in a while just basic FOWLS tests for now temperature is at 79.5ish read by my digital stat, my lighting is no good right now its just a little 12inch 8000k T8, but since i'm an electrician and my dad owns the company i work for, i orderes a double lamp HO
T5 which i'm goign to be putting an anticic and a 10000k bulb in.
my clown fish are acting weird for the past two days by swimming sideways close to the surface of the water, behind the water fall of my filters but i don't see any trouble with their breathing, no clamped fins and they eat normally and sometimes swim normally. i figured i'd try to get soem info on how to lower the nitrate a bit more just incase thats the problem.
