Rep: WasabiThumbs is an unknown quantity at this point
Red face Are my water parameters ok?

GH- 100-120 ppm
KH- 80-120 ppm
pH- 7.5
Nitrite- <0.75 ppm
Nitrate- Virtually 0 ppm, def less than 10

I am mostly concerned about nitrite levels, I got some different types of anubias since that helps in the nitrogen cycle but I have yet to see their effect. I change 40% of my 20 gallon on Mondays and Fridays. Any tips?

I use 2 drops/gallon of seachem prime and carbonates for pH and KH in every water addition.

Default Re: Are my water parameters ok?

nitrites tell you that your cycle isnt fully finished, any nitrites at all is a concern with livestock in the tank
