For the plants that is......
So less than 1-2ppm for more than a couple of days in high light/CO2 tanks
that are in good shape as far PO4, CO2, light, Traces.
If your NO3 bottoms out for more than a couple to 4 days, things will shut
down plant wise and then algae will come in.
You can get away with longer peroids of time if you have less light.
Now there's a good reason to have less light, less lagae potential and less
plant _growth_, but still getting good plant _health_.
There's a big difference between health and growth.
