    Default Help nitrates

    Im having a nitrate issue, my ammonia reads zero and nitrites read zero and ph is at 7.8 but nitrate is through the roof. All fish appear happy and healthy, tank has been running for 2 1/2 months now, 1 month for cycle and a month and a half with my fish. I have 12 african cichlids all range from 3-6 inches and 3 plecos all about 4 inches. Running a fluval 406 filter and a sponge filter. Any help is appreciated.

    How big is the tank? How often are you doing water changes? How large are the water changes? Have you tested your tap water for Nitrates?

    You may have noticed, this isn't the active forum that it once was. If you need answers faster, you might want to try another forum. If you do, they will ask the questions I just asked anyway. So if you include that information, they may get back to you faster with an answer. FishLore is a general fish forum, but they love to help people with these type problems.
