I have a fake rock structure, and I'm using Petco sand as my substrate. I also have a couple small pieces of driftwood in the tank. Nothing out of the ordinary. I dose 1mL of Flourish once a week and every other day I dose 1mL of Excel (which I'm going to stop since its becoming a shrimp tank).
So either the flourish is boosting my params, which I'm sure is unlikely, or my tap readings were wrong.
