OK I will do larger WC's - I am going to go buy a small pump so as to make replacing the water easier - taking it down that low makes it a real pain adding the water back in because the STS is so light.
I too am perplexed at the 0 nitrates. The question is what to do about it. Is there any other way to ensure that the params are correct?
I guess I could take a sample to petco and have them test it. They use the test strips. I guess I could get some of those as well - maybe I have a bad test kit??Mike
