    I was on a lil vacation and had some1 looking after my fish so I wasn't near a pc in a bit to check the thread; I took out all the metal tacks and the new rocks I added I also clean out my filters once a month as well; and honestly I'm so sick of the test getting 160+ppms when it can't be true I haven't even bothered to check since. I'll try half tank water half tap and straight from the filter etc. Today I do my normal water change anyway.

    My testing kit isn't old and I do everything perfectly with it I even have a stopwatch to time it. I just added a baby longfin pleco and he's as happy as they get so I really think something was throwing the results off because my candy cane tetras are also showing spawning behavior atm which I highly doubt would happen in really high nitrate water.

    I'm just so sick of that god forsaken api nitrate test.

    I'll let you guys know how the results are in a bit.

    Long time fish keeper most experience with CA/SA cichlids, natives like sunfish, and aggressive catfish.
    Currently have a 29g planted with 14 candy cane tetras, 6 sterbai corys, 6 melini corys, a roided out tiger angelfish and 1 mustache wearing albino longfin pleco.
    Oh and they all get along amazingly!!! went through 4 BN plecos and 2 angelfish until I got ones with the right temperament but it's the most mellow tank now.
