Don't think I've ever tested for nitrAte, but the pH was about 7.0 and the kh between 1 and 2.

Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

Yeah I'm pretty much identical to Neill's parameters, though I've had periods where the kH has been nigh non-existent.
