Thanks for your advice I will try that this week
I wish you well!
Update: Well, I took a sample of my water to the LFS and sure enough it's the same reading So, I can rule out the type of tester I use. I did a 25g water change yesterday and another 30g today, at this point I just don't know what to do anymore
Are wc's lowering the Nitrate??
Nope that's the weird part. I changed the water 2 days in a row because one of the nems got sucked up in the powerhead. All in all within the last 2 weeks I have probably changed 100% of the water but Nitrates are still high.
What do you have in there fish wise??
I would definitely consider purchasing a brand new nitrate kit to check results.(3 kits/tests are always better then 2)Are you using tap water for wc's?
What brand of salt??Check wc water for nitrates before adding.What kind of wc container are you using??
Instead of changing more water right now I would run some fresh carbon.
Can't use carbon I'm already using NoPOx, I have a lot of fish, I use natural saltwater for years, Tested new water and all at zero, I'm using the basic 5g jugs, I've had my water tested by others and they got the same results so I don't really think it's the test kit.
Gottcha.Have you checked Phosphate levels??
