For the recommended levels we are shooting for though (5-10 ppm in this
case), isn't that referring to just nitrate and not total nitrogen?  My
understanding is the target is 5-10 ppm nitrate.  If that is the case, isn't
the number I am getting from my test kit, without adding anything to it, the
number I am looking for with regards to the target range?


I think nobody except Seachem produces a suitable alternative to nitrate, so all references to nitrogen fertilisation tend to assume nitrate. But the plants will use the nitrate whether it is in the Seachem form or the nitrate form, so that 5-10ppm would extend to all sorts of nitrogen (just that normally the other sorts such as ammonia are only found in tiny amounts). But then I understand that it is only a very rough ballpark figure anyway...
