High nitrates, but low undectable phosphates help page 5 reef2reef saltwater and reef aquarium forum electricity around the world

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with doing daily waterchanges with the DOS, you can probably do some big manual ones if you want. It’s likely only the large manual ones will really make a dent in the gasbuddy diesel nitrates in the short term. I don’t think your nitrates even being that high are really the problem. Not having phosphates is the problem.

I’m not someone who’s used algae as an export system to maintain electricity prices by country a system so keep that in mind with this next part. If it was me, I would use your DOS to do small daily waterchanges, preferably spread out over the whole 24 hours, I would clean out my sump/refugium and start using NOPOx and I’d also use Prodibio BioDigest, or brigthwell MicroBacter7 But you’ll still have to make sure you have phosphates in the system otherwise it won’t work and it will add a level physics electricity equations to your problem. You have to start slow and cosistently but you can use your nitrates to fuel a probiotic environment which will be a long term solution and you won’t have to worry about whether chaeto grows or not, it also makes it much easier to control (you control via the dosage of NOPOx).

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with big waterchanges as long as all the parameters match, but it’s a temporary solution and it’s risky with a tank of corals, the DOS excells at doing small constant waterchanges and that electricity in the 1920s will make all your corals happy, but you won’t see much of a dent in your nitrates, but like I said they really aren’t the problem. I’ve had austin electricity outage my tank full of SPS up to 80 ppm of NO3 with no issues before, but I always had detectable phosphates.

Click to expand…Ok alot of good info there, I’ve been maintaining po4 like you said, so your saying that gas in oil I can do bigger water changes 60 80 100% but my nitrates will just climb back up because my system has been po4 depleted for so long, your saying because of this it’s going to take awhile to essentially build back up my bacteria thats died off or been In a hibernation state because of my low po4, and that’s the part that’ll take time, kind of restarting the system cycle, ??

Also I personally think that because my skimmer is rated for such a bigger tank then my 90, I think its pulling out all the inorganic zyklon b gas effects or organic Po4 I cant remember which is removed, i know people here have told me this cant be the case, but I can’t stop thinking about my skimmer being rated for 200+ gallons on my 90 gallon has a lil to do with my system being po4 limited, maybe If i switch to a skimmer thats rated for my system it could put thi gas back into balance?? And add a few more fish I could gas pedal lyrics possibly get away with having to do po4.
