    Nitrate is relatively harmless. However, for the best development, the lower the better. Nitrate contributes to yellowing of shiroji, reduces lustre, prematurely ages the skin and does nothing good. It simply is not life threatening like nitrite.

    In my old pond I often had nitrate levels at 25ppm or higher. After trees in the vicinity were removed by hurricanes in 2004, nitrate levels dropped considerably. In my current pond nitrate is typically well under 10ppm, and usually at or below 5ppm.

    What is your ideas on 'safe' levels for nitrates? What test protokol do you follow? drops, tabs, poweders or digital? Accuracy?

    I use the Hanna C203. My current levels are around 15- 25ppm. When using the tablet test I get a way different reading. Any similar experiences out there?
