  • Not able to establish Full cycle - Nitrates problem

    I have a very heavy stocked mbunas cichlid 80gal tank and I’m trying to create a full cycle filtering (eliminating the nitrates). Actually I’m doing 50% water change 2 times per week to keep the nitrates around 20 (reaching between 40-80 just before the water change). Then for sure...

    I have 2-20 gallon tanks. Neither is over stocked and have live plants. I feed once/day. Over the last several months, I have started using RO water for my weekly (to 10 day) water change of about 4 gallons each time. I add Equilibrium...
