How old is the tank? When was it cycled and how? How high are the nitrates? Is the tank planted? Should keep them under 20. Usually a large water change or two will bring them down.
I'm experiencing the same thing. I have medium-high light, and not quite heavily planted yet. I also am dosing with the all in one fert by @nilocg. I haven't stopped dosing to see if that helps, so i am only dosing once this week to see what happens. I'll keep you up to date with what happens on mine as well. My nitrates are reading around 40ppm as well.I am still having problems with my tank it is green to yellow water I'm doing a water change weekly and nothing has happened my nitrates are still in the high range HELP
