Yes and yes, all is well with the bucket test and the test kit is good, I also have an AP N03 test kit that is good, both the redsea and AP kits readings are very simular..
it is Spectracide Stump Remover, ingredients are Potassium Nitrate.
Guess I will order some from greg watson and see if I get same results,
The plants are very healthy with very little algae at all, I rarely have to scrape the glass, it even stays clean, pearling is good, although im not a fan of alot of pearling, and my water stays very clear. I even have to add fleet (phosphates) almost daily, and definatly every other day.
Surely my plants aren't eating that much but guess they are. hmmm
