      Who doses nitrate and which brand?

      I finally broke down and did an ICP test on my tank. My nitrates were at 0.2 ppm, which isnt bad, and I was thinking about maybe adding some more since my tank is both crowded and going on 4 plus years.

      Anyone had suggestions on nitrate products that they dose with and like?

      Iíve used the FishOfHex brand and worked well for me. I recently got the green leaf aquariums brand recently and so i can make bulk. The FishOfHex one gallon was too expensive to ship. Good luck!

      I've used the tree stump remover before. Added a little, tested, no results. Added a little, tested, no results. Added a little, BOOM, algae farm. I don't use it anymore.

      Well I have a refugium with ton of cheato so it eats up a lot of nitrate. Iíve overdosed with stuff with no ill effects. So I am neutral on the product as I canít get my nitrates up.

      Who doses nitrate and which brand?

      Sorry to side track...I just got those too! Which website a did u use to dose? I will text U this weekend if thatís ok.

      In researching and Randy Holmes Farley seems to prefer sodium nitrate versus potassium nitrate. There is someone on Etsy that sells sodium nitrate.
