My apologies. Forget that I put those points in front of those figures. I was typing some nitrite and ammonia figures just before that, and it seems that I got carried away with point this and point that! Sorry about that. I agree that if you can keep your nitrates down as much as possible that it's better for your fish, but there is no reason to start panicking until the nitrates get up over 40ppm. Depending on what fish you are keeping of course.
