Emergency Redsea NO3PO4 total kill

Had slightly high nitrate thought I would tighten up parameters by using RED SEA NO3 PO4 X. After 2 doses woke up this morning to a total fish kill. Tank has been stable for over 3 years. BE WARNED

Sorry to hear about your loss. I've been using the product for over a year without any issues. I'm on my 4th 1 liter bottle without any problems.

Can you share some parameters of your tank. Such as tank size, dosage amounts, NO3 & PO4 levels.

You most likely added too much which will starve all the oxygen out of the system Sorry for your loss.

Late reply, but yes I too think too much too quick. I believe it's carbon dosing, and it does not take much to grow enough bacteria quickly (hours) to use up all the oxygen.

Usually good to do your first doses of these things when you are around all day to watch.
