Ok I'm gonna look into this lol. I always thought no phosphates and some nitrates lol. Maybe I have it wrong. Phosphates will bring algae so I've always kept them at zero, I've always allowed some nitrates since day 1 and you've seen my tank. I've tried to keep my nitrates to .05.
I'll do some research and of you have any links or such please share!
Thanks' always willing to learn new things so I can share with others.
