I was dosing microbacter clean and didnt notice a differece but when I stopped my nitrtes shot up to 30. Never had them past 10. I did just add a bunch of corals but had not feed them yet when they got that high. I did 2 big waterchanges withing 3 to 4 days and hooked up skimmer so now all is good.
my nitrates are back up. Started feeding corals. Should I dose nopox? I have a bottle that came with used tank. Would microbacter lower nitrates? I use chemipure elite and that seems to work for phosphates. I thought having a skimmer would make a difference. I put the chemipure in my sock. sorry to highjack your post.
I want to start dosing stuff for color and growth. I change water weekly so usually my nitrates are 10 or below and calcium and all is good. My corals are all small frags so they arent consuming much. Pretty new to this. Spent countless hours reseaching and watching youtubes but still so much to learn!
