is it possible that with my AC being out this week and my tank reaching temps of sometimes 83 degrees that my nitrates would be abnormally high? I do religious 20g water changes every Sunday and they have been between 0-10. I did a 20g water change on Saturday to try to lower the temp and when I tested the water it was close to 40-50. So Sunday I did an additional 20g change and they tested at 25-30. All changes are done with RODI water that I make at home and instant ocean salt. Salinity and Ph are both testing normal(no ammonia or nitrites). The only new addition was a small Tomini tang the week before the AC went out and I don't think he would create that much waste. Any insight would be great. Thanks
