All nitrate dosing raises alk the same amount per unit of nitrate added.

It may be better to use ammonium carbonate ( alk neutral) or ammonium chloride (depletes alk) to boost N.
Do you mind sharing with me the difference between the two you just mentioned please.

I've got higher phosphates and no nitrates. I'm at .08 phosphate (Hanna phosphorous) and 0 nitrate (salifert and red sea).

Still have gha and some Cyrano starting to build.

I feed daily heavy and and have some nps corals and inverts that I also feed heavy with (gorgonians, flame scallop, sun polyp).

What is best to use to dose nitrates with?
Nyos nitrate+

Sure.

I describe them in detail here, and many folks have posted their experiences.
