    Default Nitrates.....

    #ed_op#DIV#ed_cl#Ok, is the easiest way to get rid of nitrates through H2O changes ? My nitrates have climbed to 20, and want to bring it down. Tank is fairly new 7 weeks. No real live stock other than damsels crabs and snails. I just put a big clump of Chaeto algae in the sump, and hope that should help control it. What do you folks think bout controlling these pesky bi-products of sea life ?#ed_op#/DIV#ed_cl#
