    Are you working on getting the temp down?

    How long have you had them?

    That is a HUGE phosphate reading, what test kit did you use to test this? Do you have any algae problems?

    Viper Phyrannus possibly meant 0.3-0.5? Surely if he had such a high level of phosphate than there would be some nitrate in the water. My phosphate test kit only shows reading up to 2ppm :-|
