Oh wow my thread blew up!! Hahaha. I'm definitely going to try some of the options you guys/girls gave me. I have a well and with the ro/di and way it filters water 4/1 i'll have to stock up on it over the next couple of week so the well doesn't go dry lol. I'll try it in the next 2-3 weeks and post some updates. I do appreciate the help from everyone and their opinions. Thanks again!!.

I wouldnt take any action until you get your water tested by another source. If youre testing at 80 and are losing shrimp, you more than likely have high trates, but you need to verify that before taking drastic measures. If your lfs tests it and verifies the 80ppm reading, then its time to take action.

**edit** if you cant get your water test verified, simply do a 50% pwc and give it a few hours then retest. If youre at 80 now, you should test at 40 after... If not, your test kit is messed up

Ok sorry guys and girls it took me almost a full day to get 12 gallons of ro/di water a week ago bc i need to get a booster to jump start the psi for it. Bc of the well water set up at my house my ro/di only pumps out like 35-40psi so it takes forever. I did a 50% water change and tested the water with both the old and new api master saltwater kit and on the original one it still says 80ppm but the new on says 0ppm. So all along it was just the nitrate bottle were bad. Phew good to know. I appreciate the help with this everyone and thanks again !!!
