This is about my mature 30 gallon JBJ nano tank. The last water parameter I am struggling with is the nitrate level. With water changes, lowering the fish count, and changing filter floss frequently, I got my level closer to 10. Next I cut my feeding in half, and continued with 20% water changes weekly. I also stopped siphoning/cleaning my sand bed. I added two tiger conch. Now I have the level down to 5. (Getting there finally.) So I wonder that if leaving the sand bed alone helps avoid nitrate buildup, would using a turkey baster or equivalent on the rock-work benefit or harm my efforts to lower the nitrates?
