WOOT!!!!!!!

After the fear of pulling the bio-wheels off of my HOB filter, but a constant battle with high nitrates for over a year, I finally made the commitment in January to pull the bio-wheels and to doing 20% weekly water changes. For the first time in a long time, I am at near zero readings on my nitrates. I wouldn't call the reading on my API test a solid zero, but it is definately less than 5 ppms!!


Whew! Finally!
