Any tips? Have set it up with bucket of salt water higher than the nitrate remover to drain into a bucket on the ground. I can get it going by sucking the hose at the lower end of the nitrate remover but it just stops - like some constant suction is needed? Can anyone help please?
I ripped some lettuce up into small pieces but they seem to have trouble swallowing/digesting it as they spit it out again - maybe the same with spinache which has a similar texture? Are the fish to young/small? Had them for 6 / 9 months will look at garlic now too
As far as i am aware my tap water ph has always been fairly fixed at around 7.8-8. However when i tested it today yesterday and today it is 7.2 (which could go up to 7.4 after 48 hours). Looking at the water company it gives a range of 7.3 - 7.9 with a mean of 7.6. I think I read somewhere that when there is loads of rain that can affect things - is that correct?
Also it now seems to be a bit more buffered with a better kh than last time i checked when i was trying out my nitrate remover. And the good news is that whereas before he ph crashed on going through the nitrate remover so i could not use it, today the ph remained constant though the kh went down a bit but was still at an acceptable level.
