    bluez i saw a while back someone say don't use tap water to wash out your test vials as it can contaminate them.....I used tap water, citric acid with ro, white vinegar, and ro got the same reading from my tank each time so for me it made no difference atall but my tap water is pretty good compared to other parts of the country.

    Nitrate update! Finally got my nitrates moving. Not ideal but. Now at 25! Hopefully they'll keep reducing!

    I used JBL BioNitratEx. Took a few weeks to kick in.
