    Dumb, long nitrate question

    Hi all, Sorry for the long question/update. :-) I can't remember how long I've had my tank now, I think since December. I've had a bunch of issues including ich, random deaths of one fish at a time while everyone else seems fine, and most recently some weird illness that kind of looked like...
