Started Ei Dosing/ Nitrates are HIGH?!
hey guys I just started EI dosing yesterday on my 20 gal long. I micros yesterday (CSM+B) and idid macros today (KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4) idid the appropriate doses and I tested my water today and my nitrates are 160 ppm?!?!? not sure if there was a malfunction in the test kit or the dosing raised my migrates really high? Would it be necessary to dose KNO3 since I believe my fish are producing the nitrates? they seem to be doing fine and haven't noticed anythn but ithink im going to do a water change?
any help guys? thanks!
