    Your statement on trying to determine where the level was once it exceeded 40 ppm was right on...mine were pushing 200 ppm. I did it your way "if you dilute the fish tank water in the test tube by a ratio of 4:1 with distilled water (4 parts total, 3 distilled, 1 FT water) then you would multiply the measured results by 4." to find out what my Nitrate level was at.

    Now let me ask you this, I just took my FT water and add 2 drop instead of 10 drops to test the water. That's 20% testing solution into the FT water, than multiplied the reading by 5 to bring it back up to the 100% range. It seems to me that the read out is the same...which was way too high. I backed off on fish food and started doing water exchanges to get my Nitrate level back down to around 100 ppm.

    I also think that the high Nitrate level had a negative affect on my plants.
    Apollo, how did this adjustment to the nitrate test work for you? After the water and food adjustments, did your plants start doing better?

    I do belive that jason is correct. Apollo was was unhappy with the changes I made when I took over the community and left. It is a shame but it does happen. Maybe if you drop him a Pm he might respond to you privately as from his previous posts he has always been more then willing to share his knowledge.
