    Heís is most dominant male. There is another aggressive male in the tank but his black edges arenít quite as noticeable.

    I think the black edging is just him maturing and part of the process of turning blue. Heís changing by the day which is interesting to see!

    Whatever the reading, I'd do a WC to bring those trAtes down

    Iíll retest later and see where the nitrates are at.

    Yep. They do wonders to help keep nitrates down between WCs and also can eliminate algae in competing for nutrients. They are crazy hogs!

    Really cool. I'm learning about this with you, I don't even know what the end product is, so really interesting.

    How much water did you change out with the WC? Any nitrates in your source water? In my planted tanks, nitrates stay at 0ppm. My tanks are not stocked like yours, but you'd be surprised how much some floating plants or simple pothos can take out of the water.

    I did a 35% water change. Didnít want to do a massive one since the fish havenít been in my water long. Going to keep doing daily changes until the nitrates settle.

    My tap water does have 5-10ppm nitrate already though which isnít helpful.

    I did fill my third canister filter with biohome ultimate. This media claims to provide an environment for anaerobic bacteria deep inside the media to convert nitrate into nitrogen which then gases off. The process however apparently takes a few months to get going. Whether this is true or not I donít know. I hope it does so it will kind of help with the nitrates in the tap water.

    Will give the pothos a try and if it doesnít work, will just have to increase water change frequency.

    That's interesting about the anaerobic bacteria in the filter media. I'd have to refresh my memory on how that works to convert nitrate to nitrogen gas. I have anaerobic bacteria in my dirted tanks. When disturbing it, I see bubbles erupting from 2" and higher substate beds. I release it now and then by poking the substate with a skewer, oxygenating it. The bubbles float up and gas off above water and smells like sulfur. I was under the impression these bubbles are not toxic to the fish, since they almost immediately gas off (unless a small fish swam into a bubble maybe), but I forget how anaerobic bacteria affects nitrate.

    But do give the pothos a try :) They'll clean your air too win-win. And look nice too!

    I like this one too
