My new tank has been going for a while now and my nitrates are still around 8. I only have fish and cleanup snails in it right now but would like to start moving my corals and other fish over soon. I am wondering if I should start dosing NOPOX or using pellets to lower the nitrates or just wait it out. I am running a Rain 2 algae scrubber and skimming. The scrubber is filling up with algae but not sure if it is enough to lower the nitrates down. I would like to see them stabilize below 4-5 at least before moving other livestock into the tank.
