OK folks and folkesses

This is in my 25litre tank which has Crumble the Platy, and Mustard, Bayleaf and Fennel the guppies as residents, as well as a rapidly expanding population of smails. It has a vine-wood branch with Anubias and Java Fern on, and about the surface covered with Frogbit. I throw a handful of Frogbit in the compost bin every other week.

On the left... the nitrate reading of my water change water as kindly supplied by Thames Water Authority.

On the right... the nitrate reading of the water that I take out of the tank.

I was so surprised that I did it again to make sure I hadn't mixed them up!! I kept all parameters the same, temp, shakes etc etc.... so I think I'll reduce my water changes in that tank - I seem to be making it worse!
