    I'm dosing Seachem also. A little more work but more controllable.

    I was reading zero in my test kits for both NO3 and PO4 and dosed a small amount of sodium nitrate to get the tank registering a detectable value. You could try seachem flourish which is their line of nitrate and phosphorus additives. Once I got the nutrients where I wanted, the tank has been on auto-pilot nutrient-wise with the chaeto and skimmer doing the nutrient export. Hope that helps.
