my NO 3 is almost 100

Questions about PH and other water parameters? Have a DIY solution for improving water quality for your fish and plants or maybe strategies for making water changes easier?

my NO 3 right now is almost 100mg/l, NO 2 is 0 which is good and everything else is good. You suggest only water changes? Anything else?

Great!!!. Glad I could help. Hows your ammonia and NO2? These are what drive NO3 up. As your filters get established, you should see them get stable and be close to zero.
