How much does a live plant change your nitrate buildups? Is it possible to see a change from the addition of just one small plant?
well that's not exactly what I was thinking. I do appreciate the replies though.
I just got my nitrate kit today and tested at 40. I do water changes so I'm gonna check my water to see if there's nitrates in it. In the meantime I've got more water changes and I've got Prime. Just exploring my options.
My tap water tested at 40 ppm. Seems ridiculous. Has anyone else had water that nitratey?
Your water would be perfect for a heavily planted tank. There are many simple easy to care for plants out there.
Once you start buying water it can get expensive as you have to keep on buying.
