Need help with water parameters.
I was wondering what levels I should be looking for in a planted nano tank from the API master test kit. my PH is in between 7 and 7.5. my ammonia is 0, nitrites is .50 ppm, nitrates is 10 ppm. I am not to sure what all the parameters should be at. Am i close, or are you just looking for a consistent reading every time i do a test? i thought the ammonia is suppose to read a little bit so that your beneficial bacteria have food to eat. and the nitrates should be at 20 ppm for the plants? Is this correct? Thank you for any help, it is greatly appreciated.
