Today is day 5 and I realized that I've been dosing for a 25 gal, so I increased by .1 ml for a current total of .3 ml per day.

This brings new meaning to the phrase "drunk as a fish"

Vodka is a good food for denitrate filters, but dont add vodka to your tank, your just poisioning the fish.

No, you can add vodka to your tank if you follow an appropriate protocol. You will not poison anything in the tank.

Its been awhile since I last posted, that's because nothing has happened. I have gotten to 1.5 ml per day and not seen any change in nitrate, I'm going to increase to 1.8 ml tomorrow.

It can takes a while to build up bacteria levels to an effective amount. Don't rush the step up process & you'll get there.

Vodka works well.But you must also have a skimmer.I only dose 2 ml a day but it is dropping the trates in mine,
