NO2 - .5 NO3 - Over 200??
I just bought some new cories for my tank. I was testing my water in my quarantine tanks before I placed them in there and the water quality of the water the fish were in to determine if I needed to adjust the time I acclimated them.
Here are my parameters I tested for the quarantine tanks (both setup at the same time):
Here are my parameters I tested for the LFS:
200+ NitrAte (it was darker than limit on the test I have)
I was kind of peeved, because the guy at the store is always bragging on how much cleaning their aquariums are than another local store (which that store I have consistently tested water at 0, 0, & 80).
Anyway, here's my question. Is this going to cause issues for my cories on the switch over to a tank with much less NitrAtes? I moved them a little over a half hour ago, and they are darting around the tank and breathing hard. I am wondering if I should do anything to help their transition other than turning the lights off in the tank and staying away for a while.
