I can confirm this.  Greg mentioned these points in his talk at the
convention back in November (mostly from audience questions!)  There was
also an issue of switching the Calcium-to-magnesium ratio in Flourish
Equilibrium.  All his slides regarding fertilizer referenced Diana's book
at the bottom.  (Yes, I have been watching these talks too many times,
forward, backwards, scrub slowly, ripple delete a blank space here, drop
in a slide here, add a transition effect.  After some 40 hours, strange
sensation... sudden desire to buy entire Seachem product line and fancy
