You can limit algae with P as well. Both methods work...and you can do it
with Fe as well. Many ways to skin a cat. Keep testing and see what you tank
and plants do. I've been quite pleased with my old high P water and now have
none in the tap. I've seen some plants take a beating due to the lack of P.
