Paracleanse Treatment and High Nitrates

Recommended Posts

Trying to figure out what to do. I put a dose of Paracleanse in my tank yesterday morning as a follow-up of medicating 2 weeks ago. I didn't test my water before (Yes, I'm an airhead). I tested last night and it's between 20-40 nitrate. Do you think the fish will be ok until Saturday or should I change water sooner. I'll keep testing nightly. If I do change the water, do I add Paracleanse again?

You'll be fine, anything under 40ppm isn't considered high in planted aquariums. I regularly aim to have my nitrates that high. 

Thanks, Cory!

Mine isn't an established planted tank. I just started plants in the last month. They're still small, but I think they're growing. LOL.
