I’d like to get a second opinion on the below nitrate test, personally I think it is around 400ppm?

Not to be that guy, but I think you meant 40 not 400. And also not knowing your system, hard to help you on this.
Is it a predator tank ? Fish only ? Mixed reef, Softy tank, wall to wall Acro tank ?

Knowing this will help. If its an ACRO tank 40 or 50 doesn't matter ( They both are way too high )

Most success comes with under 10 nitrates.

If its predator tank you can probably get away with either 40 or 50 Nitrate.

Give some more background and tank set up info and the Gurus here will be able to guide you to success !!

Yes I meant 40. This is a quarantine tank, I’ve been keeping tanks for a good few years. I don’t trust my eyesight so I came to get a second opinion. Thanks!
