WTH are the trAtes doing so high, especially after recent PWC's??...this is baffling
I guess the clam experiment didn't pan out, either, but at least the aliens have left the 75 alone...for now

Man, I have no idea... unless something is wasting away in there and I don't see it... maybe the Flash pleco? I'd expect a spike in ammonia, though... not just trates. Unless the test is just bad? That shouldn't be the case, though, because it expires in 2018. Wth?

Wow! I can't image nitrates that high in a tank with so many plants AND a pwc just a few days ago. Glad you're going to test your tap and I'm beginning to be also interested in a side by side comparison of the API and the Seachem test kit.

Yep, makes no sense...frustrating as hell...I bet you're anxious to get home and start some detective work...

Kevin if you get a nanny cam for your tank you will not see the aliens. but you can watch from work.

lol a Nanny Cam. Good call, CM. ;P I'm a little weary of them, though, since they can actually get hacked and people can start talking through them. Pretty creepy.
Very anxious, Matt... Can't wait to get out of here.
Judi, I'll definitely post my findings. I'm bewildered as to why this is happening. Especially the day before I drive to Ohio for a few days. Ugggghhhh
And of course the Kribs decide to start nesting, right before I leave, too...
