There are many ways to skin a cat,and two things can be equally true.

Go with you like. I want simple as can be ..gravel,good simple filtration,not reactor this or reactor that..quality lighting and IG..not Global Warming gass's in canisters that I have to drag to a weld shop whose owner will think your nuts doing that for a "fish tank?" as he laughs at ya. Dirt, Its looks natural,it sounds natural..it's just not really needed. Unless,you plan on never ever dosing. Then dirt and soils are of course better for weeks at least,rather than raw tap water.
I think we all understand what your theory is, but we also know that many people have done experiments or tried other methods with results that are not compatible with your theory. You are welcome to demonstrate why your idea is the best one. But just repeating it isn't likely to change anyone's mind.

I answered the questions put to me. Most of them were repetitive. I did my best to give the same solid,not veering answer with some new twists.
After all these years...I tried them all,and I've seen many advanced aquarists say how natural and uneducated others must be not to use..... DLS trickle filters!..LOL.
Then,before that,the reverse undergravel filter was wonderbar!....Metal Halides...those and more had scientific graphs in all the fish magazines.
I started in November with the iron and things have just done a 180 on me...except for Vallisneria that seems not to care if you add anything to the water..but always something different in any tank.

No, you haven't answered questions. You simply keep repeating the same erroneous statements over and over again. There are several different ways to establish and maintain a successful planted aquarium. But all require an accurate understanding of how they work which you have not demonstrated. And your grammar and punctuation have deteriorated until it is difficult to understand what point you are trying to make.

I am closing this pointless argument.
