I'll have to echo Mr. X's question as I don't think it's a light issue.

Parameters and flow need to be answered


Just curious can you take a FTS? I just wanna see the entire tank.

I like to see numbers of all parameters. Not saying you don't know what your doing but IME I've seen too many people echo the words "my parameters are all good" then after getting numbers you find something.

Don't take it personal

I'm a rookie here so I'm wanting to see what the experts say. I though nitrate was supposed to be close to 0 but I'm prob wrong.

You want to get the trates and the phos down. Do a pwc and retest. Good luck.
