I'm having issues with Nitrate levels in my marine thank, it's testing as 30PPM
Weekly water changes of 20 litres in a 190 litre tank.

Is 30PPM too high?

Ammonia , Nitrite, and PH levels are all fine

30 is alright, I would try and prevent it from rising much higher just because it helps keep algae under control. 

I replied on your other post about filter media,  hopefully the JBL NitrateEx stuff will do a good job. But in the meantime keeping the sponges clean (rinse in old tank water when doing your water changes)  should help. 👍
