Where do other AF users keep their No3?

Curious where others keep their NO3 for best color and growth. Mine has stabilized at about 1 and colors are okay, but not great. I picked up another fish and started feeding a bit more to maybe get it up to 2. Just wondering what others are doing.

All depends what kind of corals you want to keep. Acropora in theory should have below 1. montipora, seriatopora , poccilopora around 2-4 . Lps around 5 is ok. It's a theory... that is why we can see some nice tanks with acropora with NO3 10-20 ... there are many other factors like light, supplementation, water movement etc. In my Lps tank I keep NO3 around 5-8 but in sps tank with demanding acropora corals (like Fiji, Australia) I recommend to keep it below 1 ...

Mines undetectable on Red Sea. Donít know how much I trust it. I think I Iíd be around 1 or 2 judging by my algae growth on the glass.
