Do not overfeed or overstock. Both cause excessive nitrates, and with bad lighting or too long of a light cycle bad algae will grow.

Now that there is a debate that can go on forever. Ultimately this is answered somewhere in-between minimum requirements and your wallet. There are pros and cons to every type it's just choosing one that fits your budget for your system.
