Nitrate saftey

I need to add another 5 ppm of nitrates to my tank. Now that I finally managed to get Flourish Nitrogen, would it be safe for my fish to bring the water contents up 5 ppm all at once, or should I make a bunch of small doses throught the week?

You should be fine adding 5ppm even 10 or 15ppm at once...
That will get costly in the long run though using flourish.. go to www.gregwatson.com and get you some ferts, dose dry..

Yeah, I already spoke with Gregg though, and he wouldnt have been able to ship out the KNO3 until January 3rd. I was in a bit of a bind, so I got what I could get ahold of.
