Lookin' okay. You may want to do an extra water change to lower the nitrate a bit and you may want to raise your kH a tad -- have you noticed any fluctuations in your pH?

My pH is very steady so I think it's ok. The nitrites are rapidly going down...thank goodness..my poor back can't take too many days of huge water changes :)

What's the best way to raise kH?

Chrissy

:) If your pH is steady then that's good. If you still want to raise your kH you can either use buffers available at your LFS or you can add carbonate via baking soda or crushed coral (I think). I'm not sure what the measurements would be, so hopefully someone with more knowledge can help you with this.
