Nitrate Problems... Continued

Recommended Posts

This is sort of a continuation of the last thread I made. The tap in my new home has extremely high nitrates (40-60 ppm) so I am getting some plants today for my aquarium to compensate.My tap also has (0.25 ppm) ammonia. My question is how do I do water changes now? Is there something I can add to the water after water changes besides Prime? How long will it take for plants to absorb the nitrates from the tap?

May I ask why you are starting a new thread, instead of continuing on with that other one?

The other thread is called nitrate problems and it is in this section. I started a new one because I felt this was somewhat of a new question.

Guest Mr Grump

I'd suggest that with such poor water quality, that you (a) complain to your water company & (b) start using RO water. That level of Nitrates in tap water would be unlawful in the UK. Chlorine & Chloramines can show up as Ammonia, Seachem Prime is one of the few tap water treatments that can remove Chloramines. However if your water company throw that sort of rubbish down your pipes, I would use RO for your fish & bottled water for your family.
