    Depends on the fish. For a community tank 40 ppm (mg/L) is just fine.

    Thanks chinnp for an elegantly written article. I appreciate simple explanations in a conversational writing style over an in-depth lecture any day. Kudos.

    Hard to believe I wrote this article two years ago when I only really had two tanks. I know have 6 (4 of which are actually running though) and I may have to re-visit some of the stuff I wrote about.
