Yeah, I have a water conditioner which I add everytime I do a water change.
I have bought some conditioner which reduces nitrate, and I've been adding some to my tank water. It seems it's brought the levels down nicely, and yesterday the nitrate was 5, but this morning it was 10 again, so I added some more of that conditioner. I read that it can take a few doses to get the nitrate down. If the levels are still high tomorrow, I will most likely to a water change. Otherwise, Victor seems happy.
