    Can anyone achieve perfect zero parameters for ammonia, nitrite and nitrates? I can maintain low levels but never seem to zero them out completely.

    You actually don't really want zero nitrate. Some people get there, but the corals starve and are highly unhappy. In fact on unls, alot of people are dosing stump remover(potassium nitrate) to great success.

    Why do you want zero?

    The first page of this thread gave my recommendation, which is a less than value for phosphate and nitrate. When I wrote it, not that many people were actually driving way below my less than number without providing more organic foods. Now people are, and I wouldn't recommend zero. Unless you actively feed specialized foods for corals, I'd probably aim for 0.2 to 3 ppm nitrate and around 0.01 ppm phosphate (with a wider range OK). :)
