who tested your water?get some test kits,tank is too new for a nem,nitrates shouldn't be that high on a new tank,what fish do you have,how many,how long did you cycle the tank,how did you cycle your tank,temp too high,whats your pwc schedule?

And by the way i think this thread is to let you know what to put into your thread when you start one,you'll get more responses if you start one again!!
