My levels were too low to tell. Probably why it never grew, but had just enough to stay alive. I always have Nitrate just barely detectable on the regular Red Sea Kit. Around 1 ppm. PO4 varies more but usually 0.03 - 0.10 ppm.

It is my opinion, FWIW, that there are many advantages to macroalgae (and plants) beyond nutrient export. Some related to pH, O2, metals, and things we may not fully understand yet, but observe.

Everything is doing better corals growing and fish doing good. Sadly my coral beauty died due to internal parasites i believe. Got an acan and duncan frag and thats all thats new.

He or she is pretty peaceful never have any issues any more.the multibar angel dominates it and just about anything else. Never bothers anyone apart from the odd dash at the smaller flavoguttatus anthias or flasher wrasse, but thats rare now.
