WE HAVE BOTH NITRITES AND NITRATES!!!!
I could just kick myself for not testing for nitrItes sooner... Oh well, at least we have them now. AND we have nitrites, is it so common to get them so close together?
Anyway, here are the actual results.
High Range pH: 8.2
Ammonia: more than 0 ppm, less than 0.25 ppm
NitrAtes: more than 0 ppm, less than 5 ppm
I can't wait for that pH to go back to below 8... Should I change the water? more than 5 ppm nitrItes seems like an awful lot... I'm not sure if I read that right... here are a few pics I took of the test.
Also, the plants are shipping today!! So they should be here on Friday. I'm planning to go to LFS on Saturday!
I'm not going to add any more food, I figure I already have enough.
I mean I have 5 or 6 in there already.
I'd use fish food as well. Wafers can cloud water if they're not consumed
I'd use fish food, if I had any. Thanks for the advise though!
My, this has turned into a book...
EDIT: Ok, so it says that
A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.
So now I'm a TAD confused...
