    Cycling Question

    Hello!! I am new to this forum and am very new to keeping fish. Weve had our betta since September 2019 and recently got a 15 gallon tank for him. We set up the new tank and cycled it before moving our betta over. He's been in the tank for a little over a week now and I've been testing the water...

  • Interpreting MultiTest Nitrite & Nitrate Test Results

    I've been very happy with Seachem/Aquavitro products, with one exception: MultiTest Nitrite & Nitrate. I have never been able to obtain results that I could confidently interpret, using the provided color reference scale. When I first started cycling my tanks, I was using the MultiTest kit, but...

  • Using Stability and Prime to cycle

    A little backstory:
    I set up my 10 gallon aquarium last November, after having thoroughly cleaned it after a major GBA issue. I cleaned everything, even the filter, with tap water, which I recently found out has chloramine, to dissipate any GBA lingering. The only thing I didn't really...

  • Zero Nitrate- but I believe I need some Nitrate


    I use Prime to do what changes, which I do on a regular basis. Have a 65G planted tank, Fluval LED, Insta CO2 supply and 18 fish in it, the biggest and potentially most dirty fishing being a Plec (small) and two Upside down Cats. I work away so the tank goes through 2 weeks of no water...

  • Lower Nitrates without removing tannins (2 issues)

    Hi, hoping for some help and didn't see this combination of issue in your questions. I've bee using various products to lower Nitrates and just realized I think all of them also remove tannins, which I have been adding to lower the pH. Do you have any products that do that? Or recommendations?

    Matrix vs Pumice


    I was wondering if Seachem can clarify a few things about Matrix. I have been investigating and some believe that Seachem Matrix is just cleaned sterilized Pumice. Is this true? If so do you add something to it so it denitrifies Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate? I would rather...

    Denitrate reactor

    I have filled a phosban reactor with denitrate and tank water, then added stability. I let the reactor sit for 3 days then hooked it up to a pump. I set the flow rate to well below 50gph. The water coming out of the reactor was reading 5ppm nitrate, while the tank was reading 10ppm. Like an idiot I...

    Nitrogen question

    My tank's always reading 0 ppm nitrate and I only recently started dosing Flourish Nitrogen at the amount required to raise Nitrate to 10 ppm. However, after 1 day and no water change, the tank went from 10 ppm to 0 ppm. I'm guessing this is a slap you in the face sign of nitrogen deficiency?...

However, after reading posts on here about all of your experiences and the help Seachem provided you I can tell...
