@boss, Yeah just use ammonia from drugstore-make sure it doesn't have surfactants in it(shake it and if you see soap like bubbles then don't buy it. I can post a formula you can you on how much you should add but basically need to add enough to keep it around 2-3 ppm. Once the nitrites ...

... I'm in Portland, Oregon currently and it's summer so my water temps are fine, but in about 2 months it will start getting into the 50's at night, then quickly dropping to the 40's and upper 30's.

:dontknow: That first part kind of has me confused. If you're talking about the static up flow filter using K1 then it's really more of a mechanical filter than a bio-filter. Not saying it won't do bio-filtration but it's more geared toward removal of suspended solids. Hopefully ...
