and that is why you should turn your tank over 8-10 times, flow also plays a part.... more light, equals more ferts equals more c02....... I also see buying filters to small for there tanks. i'm sorry but that so many gph per a hour is when the canister is empy, the return pump part at 0(zero!) head volume, people don't even think about the pump loosing pressure as it as to push water up so many feet.

Rich substrate + clean water+ good filter that does 8-10 X turn over gph, and observation of tank of plants and fish, is what i observes to a stable tank.

Yes. That's rocket science for most people. Most of us would rather pollute the water with the 7+ chemicals we have decided plants can't live without.
