I am a bit confused by the mixed-reef-formula.

Are NP PRO and PRO BIO S not sufficient to reduce PO4 to lower than 0,04?

Does your mixed reef formula also require constant Phosphate Minus use?
Instead of using GFO constantly, can I dose Nitraphos Minus, if NO3 is low, but PO4 is high?

Thanks

Hello,
Nutrients levels depends of many many things. Pro Bio S and -NP Pro (or NitraPhos Minus) are sufficient to keep NO3 and PO4 low but it depends of feeding, fish number, filtration.
You can observe your parameters and if hthere will be need just add Phosphate Minus.
