too many nitrates leaving the tap? + 20mg

We read everything and its opposite on the internet, here are the precise references (brands and names) of proven products that are perfectly compatible and safe with our axolotls.

Nitrates are known to be necessary, the ideal being 10 mg / liter. However, the mains water in some towns contains too much, in order to prevent algae from thriving too much or your parameters being unstable, there is a solution: anti-nitrate resins! Yes, it is possible with axololts, most resins have a mechanical action (ion exchange) so there is absolutely no risk for your kitties.

However, there is no need to use them to avoid water changes or to space them out, this would destabilize all the parameters, falling ph, polluted and loaded water. And you need nitrates for your plants!

here are some brands that you can buy with confidence:

ADDING BACTERIA?

The ideal is to let nature take its course, prowling is used for that. The two groups of bacteria necessary for the transformation of ammonia and ammonium (axolotl waste and food) become nitrites (No2) thanks to the nitrosomonas bacteria, these nitrites themselves become nitrates (No3) thanks to the nitrobacter bacteria. But an accident can happen, a treatment killing all or most of these nice bacteria, a pump breaking down, stopping it for too long (more than three hours, without the stirring of the filter media they die. unthoughtful purchase of axolotl (unfortunately too frequent).

So yes, you can use bacteria in these specific cases: here are the ones recognized as effective, afterwards it is at your own risk, but a lot of perlinpinpin powder is sold ... or additive products can be added to it.

We do not add bacteria when we have a peak of nitrites otherwise we increase this peak and we run into disaster! The bacteria must be added to well-rested and dechlorinated water, otherwise they will be killed and added for nothing. This is only for a start-up or following a treatment (otherwise another possibility: rinse the filter media of another aquarium well run for a long time and which has not undergone treatment). One more thing do not confuse bacteria and water conditioner ... (the conditioner is supposed to remove chlorine, lead etc from your tap water).

Observe the recommended doses to avoid pollution.
