What range should the PO4 be in to classify it has high? I've had it up to
.2ppm lately. Should I keep all other ferts where in the recommended range
or lower them some? Would cutting back on light load from 2+ watts/ gallon
with PC to 1watt/ gallon be helpful? What's NPO3? I'm dosing Nitrate's and
Phosphates already is NPO3 different?
