I may be wrong, but I sense a reluctance to add nitrates and phosphates.
I can tell you that in my 75 gallon tank with more than 30 fish there
was not nearly enough of either. I had to add both on a regular basis.
Fish and fish food do not offer a significant source of nitrate or
phosphate in a CO2 and high-light tank.
