That was my experience too. What substrate are you using?

I burned my nitrates down and am keeping them in the 10-20 ppm range for the sake of my shrimp and snails.

I later tested for PO4 - it was 10+ ppm. I'm burning that off too. Presumably K and traces were equally high.

29g high tech, 10g low tech halfmoon, and please see my 5g crescent journal.
