HI,

My tank ii running OK, i know my Nitrates are higher than most but tank seems quite happy, growth not as good as i think it could be (I think that down to my Fluval Marine LED's as opposed to water parameters). I was pondering having a sample of water tested by a specialist and wonder if other have use one of these specialist providers and if you thought it had helped or just turned into a round of chasing number?

I think the tests can be done to give you an idea of any out of sync parameters you might have without having to chase the trace elements. That being said i have the triton test and dosing sat here doing nothing lol

ICP testing is good for a snapshot, and to call out any anomalies.

I’ve used Triton and Ati and prefer Ati. I always take a few days to digest the results too before doing anything.
