    Is there any Triton literature out on the N-Doc water testing?

    Just got my first N-Doc results yesterday. Wondered the same thing and found this.

    I also learned that you need to keep the language set as German on their website and let the browser translate. The English page doesn’t load correctly, so no text telling what, how to add PO4 measure.

    Do you mind showing the test results. I'm curious about other people's tank parameters.

    Here’s the results. I have falling nutrients the last month so I dosed Brightwell’s Neonitro a few times in the week before test to get nitrate to 1-1.5ppm range. I don’t know if that explains the TNb.

    Thanks! Mine looks almost exactly the same as yours. Can't wait to figure out why my Nitrogen is so high. Following!

    Were you running a skimmer at the time of your test? I was not and I believe that possibly causing some of the high Organic Nitrogen. I was also dosing NaNO3 to increase the amount of NO3 in my tank.

    Yes. I run the Vertex Omega 150 skimmer 24/7 and 6 gallons of cheato fuge going 14 hours a day w/ kessil H80 at 100% grow.

    Hmmm. I’m still curious on why we are showing similar ratios in our tanks. I wonder if I should back off feeding so much. My tank is very efficient at removing NO3 and PO4 but maybe I don’t have enough biomass yet to process all the organic Nitrogen coming in the form of fish food and fish waste? When it comes to corals filling my tank mine is still immature. Where would you say your tank is at with coral bio load vs feeding. Would you consider yourself a heavy feeder?

    I’m starting to wonder why Triton are being so slow in giving any good advice and explanations of N-DOC, seems very strange as it’s been out months now, you would of thought they would of had this from day 1, the Facebook page is the same, who’s going to buy it until they can explain fully what the results mean and the impact if any of various ratios and levels... are they winging it as they don’t actually know??
