hello,
here are my tank stats.
55gal
4 natts 3.5-4.5''
filstar xp3+whisper 4 filters
temp 80 f.
1 bublestone
3 pieces driftwood
2 random anubias plants
ph 5.0.....low because of low kh....im working on that..
nh3nh4:0
no2:0
no3:40ppm
kh:0...for now
i do weekly water changes and gravel vacumes of probably 20-25 percent....i cant seem to get no3 under 40 ppm. im planing on upgrading my tank size to a 90 gal for a perminent home for the bastards, but that will not be for a couple of months due to lack of funding.....im going to step up my water changes to 35-40 percent weekly and put some crushed coral or oyster shells in my filter to boost my kh....but i wonder if an extra 15 percent on my weekly water changes will really make a difference.....or am i just straight up over reacting....40ppm to high?.....comments ....sugestions
thanx,
Ron

yes i had a ugf and ripped it out about 3 weeks ago in hopes of lowering my no3.......my tap water tested @0.....could the no3 just be residual in the water from the ugf?........
