My tank is 3 months old. I did a water change 3 weeks ago. I took reading today and my phosphate was 0.07 ppm and my nitrate was 23.9 ppm. I just got over red slime and algae out break and the tank is looking good. I was going to do a water change but am scared that it will bring back the uglies. Suggestions please.
