Re: [APD] Sechem Flourish Nitrogen

Not quite so. 

When someone asked what it meant that the nitrogen in
Flourish was "unavailable" to algae, Dr. Morin of SeaChem

"It means that the ammoniacal nitrogen is not present as
free ammonia 
or ammonium per se, but rather is part of a more complex
that can be broken down to yield ammonium (by the plants).
So, in 
theory algae could also utilize it as a nitrogen source
however our 
studies and beta testing did not show this to be the case
(i.e. very 
little to no algae growth, in fact many saw algae

good luck, good fun,
