160??? Are you testing correctly?? Do you have the right tester?? I am surprise there is anything alive in the tank.
OK I just checked it now and it was between 40 and 80. You are supposed to look at the color at 30 seconds. If you wait longer -- it reads higher.
oh well i still am gonna acclimate them just to be safe.
Yikes.. 160ppm is crazy high for nitrates. Pretty much spells death for fish, being exposed to this long term. I'm kind of surprised things are still
I have BBA problem In my 165. Added phosguard to my filters and its begining to clear up. Oddly enough it only occurs in specific locations in my tank
