Exclamation Fry are 1 week (almost) and nitrates are rising

Ive just added some new treated water to the tank to try and lower the nitrates. Its not super high but its not on the safe level either.

Do you think adding new water will help?

Should I try to move them?

What will bring it down...

Thanks Caj, I'll test it again now that the new water settled. And I'll start doing daily water changes.

What kind of testing product are you using and what brand of dechlorinator and any other additives to the tank, substrate or barebottom, tannins...etc........do you have filtration or an airstone in the tank, volume of water currently in the tank and tank size, any live plants and the exact number on the nitrate....and its nitrate not nitrite......correct...they do two different thing in regards to fish health....you are adding fresh dechlorinated water or water from another tank......
