Re: Nitrates #1511
I though water hardness was more important for tropical fish?

Guess I'm wrong there? Have to see about getting some testers.

Re: Nitrates #1512
I'll have to check when I get home with the tap water.

Yep it's the green x pillow, I've wedged it into a fake plant so it's a bit hidden.

I haven't tested for PH for a while, I'll do that when I get home as well. I haven't got tests for the GH and KH though, what are they??

Re: Nitrates #1514
Well ammonia and nitrite is fine at 0ppm but the nitrate is over 80ppm, which should be half that.

The fish are darting around all over the place, a sign of poisioning

I only have 2 fish as I was overstocked but have corrected that problem, they're housed in a uno 600.

Just don't like hearing the thud of them banging themselves on the glass

Nitrates #1515
I'm having problems getting my nitrates down, and my fish are slowly being poisioned by it.

I've added plants, regular water changes and i've found a nitrate remover in my cupboard in the form of a pillow.

i can't get it into my filter so i've wedged it into one of the fake plants as I'm worried the fish will have a little snack on it.

Has anyone used these before just in the tank, not the filter? Would it be safe if the fish decided to have a nibble?
