Mono Potassium Phosphate to lower Nitrates
3.5 gal nano tank with plenty of plants, fish, and shrimp.
Fish are healthy and shrimp are multiplying - the plants are doing nicely too. I dose with Seachem's products and use their dosing schedule. I do a 40% water change weekly.
I was going along nicely with 5-15 ppm nitrates and then they dropped to zero.
So I decided to add Potassium Nitrate and now I can't get them back down - in the 40-50 range.
I read on one of the threads here that mono potassium phosphate will help to lower the nitrates.
Anyone have experience with this technique?
