Hi,

I've been wondering something for a while :
Is the amount of nitrates generated only proportional to fish food provided ?
Or is there a relation with stocking density also ?

In other words : in the same system, will 70 fishes fed with one cup of food per day, generate more nitrates than 35 fishes fed with the same quantity ?

Thanks !

yes
ammonia gets produced by their breathing (i think) and urine, etc.
it is a metabolite, like carbon dioxide is for us.

Short answer is yes. I could go into it further, but as a beginner and a Guadeloupian, all you need to know is that more fish equals more nitrates for the same amount of food thrown into tank.
