GFO has been removed and I changed my light cycle to 2 bulbs on from 10am-12pm, 4 bulbs from 12-7pm, and 2 bulbs from 7-9pm. Still might be to long a peroid but I need to try and see what happens might cut back on the 2 bulbs and run the an hour each instead of 2

I wouldn't be worried about the nitrates and keep focusing on the phosphates.

With each change, it can take weeks to see a noticeable difference.

Not to totally change the course of conversation, but I have very little faith in Mag Drive pumps. I've had more fail than not...and just out of warranty. I prefer Quiet One pumps.

It might just be a "Ford v.s. Chevy" type of thing, but who knows.
Eheim pumps are pretty good, but I don't think they are twice as good (about double the price).

I have Iwaki pumps that have lasted 20 years without needing any service. I use a hot tub style pre-filter basket on the intakes which prevent impeller damage. They are very good pumps.
