Hey guys,

Do not dispise your small beginnings. I have a 55g FOWLR Soon to be Reef and I'm having trouble transitioning because I cannot get a grip on to my nitrates. No matter what I do they never seem to get any lower than 30-40ppm. I don't know whether to scrap it and start over or what. You have good beginnings. Keep up the good work.

I found my problem. I'm using an API SALTWATER MASTER TEST KIT. Page 14 says it in the testing tips.

Nitrate Problems

20 gal tall community. It's in a bit of shambles right now, just sort of a collection of decor. I'm keeping some of it here to just keep the BB going on it. lol.

I'm going to give it an overhaul in the hopefully near future. The background isn't working with the window on the other side, the sun really throws off the look. It's suppose to be a dark rocky/root look but the sun really lightens it and makes it hard to see. I'm going to also switch it to planted but am waiting until after we get our 50 gallon. This tank will be moving to the master so I don't want to plant it when it's going to be moving in a couple months.

but here it is as it stands.

Here's my newly set up birthing/fry tank. Now that I have dealt with one of my worries which is these mickey mouse moons having fry in the community tank and getting eatin. Now all I am worried about is the mamas eating the fry! Man, I can't get anything right

I'd suggest putting some java moss or floating hornwort for the fry to hide in. Your tank is very pretty. I love Mickey mouse platies!
