Hello I need some suggestions. My nitrates are 2.4 and phosphates 0.14. Nitrates are usually around 5 in my tank. I have had Dinos before and this nitrates level keeps me worried. Should I dose Brightwell neonitrate to bring them up? My tank is a mixed reef tank with mostly sps corals.

Those values seem OK to me.

If you do not have the Brightwell product yet and do decide to dose, I recommend food grade sodium or calcium nitrate, or ammonia dosing. All are cheaper with a purity guarantee the Brightwell product lacks.
