Nitrate dosing if at 0?
Hello everyone, quick question for you.
My tank is registering 0 nitrate when testing using the API test kit. Is this is ideal for my plants growth?
0 ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate (could be like 1 or 2 nitrate)
Dosing Thrive (contains nitrate)
- 4 pumps ea water change
- 1 pump daily
Water changes 35% weekly
Light vacuum of full substrate
Filter mechanical media cleaned weekly (fluval 406)
Tank stocked at 115% according to aqadvisor
Feeding 2 times a day. (definitely not underfeeding the fish)
Established tank. (5 months up and running)
Is 0 nitrate in a tank bad or good?
Am I over cleaning my tank possibly?
