Just dosing and maybe root tabs?
The root tabs I pushed far into the substrate. Not sure if that could be an issue.
If you dumped a ton of osmocote in when setting up the tank that could maybe do it but pushing a few root tabs in by hand seems unlikely to cause such high nitrate levels.
Hopefully the floaters coupled with another water change or something can get the water cleaned up before you have to move the shrimp over.
