One too many Osmocote tablets!
I think I've added one too many Osmocote gel tablets into my substrate over the course of the last couple of weeks. I'm getting consistent 40-80ppm nitrate reading on my API test, even after 2 days of 70-80% water changes.
None of the fauna in the tank are showing any out word signs of stress yet, even the most sensitive, GBR and bamboo shrimp, look fine.
I've since added Nitri-zorb and purigen to my filter to help out.
Question is should attempt to remove the extra Osmocote or sit it out with more water changes? I'm afraid of causing an even large spike in ammonia and or nitrate if I disturb the substrate (Safe-t-sorb).
