Just realized that TM NP bactobalance contains nitrate and pgosphates. TM do not state it clearly on the container. I dose 6 ml to my 110g tank for quit a while and everything looks ok. However, i have to use a gfo reacror to keep my phosphates below 0.1. Alao i have many kinds of algea. TM elimi np has no phosphate but it is pricy and seem a pain to dose (too concentrated). Any suggestions (besides NOPOX)?

No bacto balance contains phosphates and nitrates and it’s adviced for low nutrient systems. Elemi NP is normally advised for higher nutrient systems, if you want to stay with tropic Marin they also have reef actif that doesn’t contain phosphates and nitrates use it until phosphates are lower and then switch back to bacto balance
