    Why ask how to lower nitrates if you just dismiss the suggestions given

    Well I found an easy way to decide who to listen to, pick the persons tank you most want yours to be like and take there advice, all the people that have advised you so far have stunning tanks so they must know what there talking about

    It's not a matter or believing you or not hun it that certain test kits are a load of rubbish and give false readings. So far what people have been telling you is not conflicting advice at all. They all say you are over stocked and I'm pretty sure you yourself already know this. As I asked before, where abouts do you live? I'd be happy to help you out. Were all here to help!
