I just got done testing my water for nitrate and GH. I could use some help at determining where I stand.

The nitrate lever was at 40ppm and the GH was at 8 or 9.

The booklet that came with the test kit listed GH of 3 for plants. Can live plants handle a GH of 8 or 9?

55 g ~ 404 Fluval Canister ~ 110w 6400k photoperiod 8 hours at the end of the day
10 g quaratine/hospital
