Hi All, Is there anywhere I can find documentation on what Triton Organics do to help balance out the system? My latest ICP and Ndoc tests suggest to add P Beta, but what does this mean to me? Looking for documentation on what exactly these organics do so I can better understand what's out of balance.

Ndoc
We have detected a lack of Nitrogen.

Please use the relevant product that best suits your individual case, please check the Help tab for more information.

In order to produce the natural value, dose the TRITON product stated in the instructions according to our dosage recommendation.
We recommend the corrective dosage of 0.69 ml for 1 day. This dosing recommendation refers to a TNb setpoint of 0.4 mg/l for your selected habitat.
We recommend a daily maintenance dose of 0.07ml. If this dose is very low, then this can be alternatively be dosed weekly (daily dose x7).

ICP
The analysis has found a low phosphorus / phosphate level in the aquarium.
In case of problems we recommend to remove/reduce the phosphate absorber from the system and to increase feeding.

For problems with Cyanobacteria, the product that best suits your system is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Beta

For a fish tank without algae/Cyanobacteria problems the product that is best suited is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Alpha

Please contact us for further support on [email protected]
We recommend the corrective dosage of 0.01 ml for 1 day. This dosing recommendation refers to a P setpoint of 6 µg/l and a PO4 of 0.018 mg/l for your selected habitat.

P Alpha/Beta are used to raise Phospate levels.

it’s possible the ICP is reading a little low for your PO4. Personally I wouldn’t dose (also why the dosage recommendation is so tiny) unless your seeing PO4 constantly low on future tests (feeding more can also work to bring it up as well)

Nitrogen is also low. So dosing NH alpha or NO beta can help. Others take to dosing nitrate in other various forms. NH Alpha is more like dosing ammonia, NO Beta more like dosing nitrate.

Thank you for this, and explains why I asked for documentation. Using the logic alpha/beta, I was thinking beta meant to lower not raise PO4. Instead I'm taking GFO offline and will monitor levels for now.

Been fighting raising Nitrogen since starting this tank, my fuge rips out nitrates. Had a cyano outbreak over the summer. Used Cya-no, nitrates got to 35ppm. In the two weeks following dosing, the tank was back down to under 2ppm.
