THEN you can meaningfully monitor the changes. As far as your fish not being stressed - maybe not visibly but high nitrates do challenge the immune system. Eventually you'll have a visible problem and then you'll need to start with a regimen of meds, salts,etc. Better to get in front of it now.
The Greater Chicago Cichlid Association — GCCA — is a not-for-profit, educational organization, chartered in the state of Illinois, dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of information relating to the biology of the fishes in the family Cichlidae, with particular emphasis on maintenance and breeding in captivity. We are simply cichlid hobbyists who love cichlids.
