  19. ok so if all is good with my levels how do i knock down the nitrate without effecting the other levels? Regular water changes! ok how often for this once every other day or everyday? How fast are your nitrate levels going up? Have you tested your tap for nitrate? The best way to know how often you need to change your water to keep levels safe is to test your water daily, that way you can figure out how many days you can go before your nitrates get high (at minimum you should change 50-80% of your water weekly, but if your nitrate levels are rising fast you will need to do a water change sooner.... rely on your test kit to tell you when ) EDIT: posted at same time as RyukinFan lol im gonna need a bigger bucket for 50%-80% on my 350L tank
  20. ok in short i found two videos for you to watch which brake down from the norwegians industrial size media to aquarium size media hope you like them? or this is the newest version
