What is nitrate?
Nitrite is oxidised into Nitrate (chemical symbol NO3) by nitrobacter, filtration bacteria.
Excessive levels of nitrate in an aquarium are responsible for poor fish colouration, lehtargy, a failure to breed, and excessive algae growth.
In seawater, high nitrates are also responsible for stunted coral growth.
