Remember that the PWC`s accomplish two things. 1) They remove excessive nutrients which is what your Skimmer does too. 2) They replace trace elements that get used up and are important for fish and invert processes. I would just do frequent PWC`s to accomplish these two things in your tank.

HOB is not needed. You can fill it with live rock rubble, but you may ocasionally need to take the rubble out and rinse it in old tank water when you do your pwc. Looks great IMO. Could use a tad more live rock, but if you like it, that's all that matters.

As for background, more your likes and dislikes than anything else. A lot of those test estimations are overrated IMO.
