liquid ferts and nitrate levels
Does the nitrogen in liquid fertilizers affect a nitrate test? I checked mine shortly after doing a water change and dosing liguid ferts and it was up a bit, between 40-80 ppm. I ran out of nitrate test solution, so I can't see if it went down significantly. The next time I add liquid ferts I will test before and after to see what the difference is, but until then I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with it? It's my heavily planted 75g tank.
