Can anyone help me, I’m reading a “0.17” is that high than a “0.2” or is it lower than?. Is my “0.17” in-between a “0.1- 0.2” I am getting mixed info from my local LFS’s

Is that a good level for a “softy & lps” system?
In my opinion it is a loaded question...I had 1 ppm (Salifert kit) for quite some time and had a hammer grow well and all my softies didn't care. I did have a serious algae problem...nitrates were around 30 ppm. I dropped the numbers to around where you are and things were fine...the hammer didn't like the drop, but everything got used to my lower numbers.

if your corals are doing fine and you don't have excessive algae growing over everything don't worry too much about numbers.
