Snailsplosion = high nitrates?
We just got a new Aquaclear 30 for our 15-gallon after realizing that our old filter was meant for 10 gallons at most. Ammonia and nitrites are at 0, but nitrates are 40. My snails have gone on a breeding spree. Can this be part of the problem?15 gal: 1 butt-ton Malaysian trumpet snails.
20 gal: 20+ various molly and platy fry.
55 gal: 40 neon tetras.
75 gal: 2 Taiwan reef cichlids, 3 pelmatochromis nigrofasciatus juveniles.
