hi again i am pleased to report that with patient water changes, no more than 20% a day my water levels are now zero. the nitrites have now totally cleared and as you said with the water changes the nitrates have now totally cleared up too. again thanks so much for your great web site.
 
i will continue to check it out regularly for any new tips. i will also continue to keep a very close eye on my fish for any changes in behavior or signs of stress. and of course continue twice weekly water changes to maintain my water levels. again thanks and bubbles my panda goldfish would also like to thank you for all the help. as he very likely owes you his life. i'm just sorry that i can't order fish from your site as i'm in canada.
 
have a good day.

Reply. Hello Sandra. We're please to read in your email that the concentration of nitrates in your aquarium water has gone down, since you started changing 20% of the water in your aquarium each day.

Nitrate is a chemical ion with a chemical formula, NO3?, that indicates nitrate is composed of one nitrogen atom and three oxygen atoms.

If you buy gravel, rocks, and other items that are labeled for use in aquariums, those items will contain only trace amounts of nitrate. Those trace amounts will dissolve into your aquarium water but will not significantly increase the amount of nitrate dissolved in your aquarium water.

But if you have rocks, or gravel, or other items in your aquarium that are not labeled for use in aquariums, those items may contain large amounts of nitrates. Those nitrates will dissolve into the water in your aquarium and greatly increase the amount of nitrates in your aquarium water.

Most of the nitrates in aquarium water are produced by beneficial bacteria that live in your aquarium and change ammonia, which is very toxic to fish, into nitrate, which is not toxic to fish. Click here to read more about the chemistry that produces nitrate from ammonia and oxygen.

If you change the water in your aquarium infrequently, the concentration of nitrates will slowly increase as a result of the beneficial bacteria changing ammonia into nitrate. The concentration of other chemicals will increase too, and water with too much of these various chemicals is not good for most types of fish. Fish like fresh water with low amounts of nitrate.

Get rid of nitrates and other chemicals in old stale aquarium water by changing 20% of the water in your aquarium twice each week. Don't overreact and change more than 20% of the water on one day, unless you have a catastrophe. High nitrates is not a catastrophe.

In our facility we have a nitrate test kit, but we very rarely use it. Because we regularly change some of the water in each aquarium, and so we know the nitrates will not be high.

Summary: be sure everything you put in your aquarium is labeled for use in aquariums, and be sure that you change 20% of the water in your aquarium twice each week. Then you will not have a nitrate problem, and you will not need to test the amount of nitrates or worry about the nitrates.

What is fresh water?

Reply. Fresh water is water without salt. The fresh water could come from the faucet in your home, or a well, or bottled drinking water.

For aquariums I recommend water from the faucet that is usually city tap water, but might be from a well. The water from some wells contains lots of iron compounds (like Iron Sulfate) and may not be good for all fish.

You should investigate your well water before using it in your aquarium. I recommend non-carbonated bottled drinking water for fish bowls. Yu can buy gallon jugs in most grocery stores.
