it is impossible to get a nitrate reading at 0, what are you using to test. you cant remove nitrates in total (all of them) with water changes and therefore there are some left always.

I also doubt these lights are bright enough to support a nem.

Water changes and protein skimmer, has kept them under control from day one. It really doesn't read, and it is tested at my lfs. Weekly.

do they give you exact numbers, what is your water change schedule like, once again the lights arent bright enough for a nem, especially in this size of a tank.

Water change is every two weeks. 50 gallons.

I'm planning on upgrading the lights, just don't have the $1500 atm.

return the nem until you can afford the lights. it will die otherwise.
