This is true... over-filtering just makes sure that there is enough bacteria to complete the cycle. In the end it still ends up as nitrate, which filters do not remove. Plants and water changes...

I didn't want more than 2 weeks of solution, or it'll get moldy. I had a bigger reservoir on my first attempt, and they got icky after a few weeks. Now I keep the main mixes in the fridge in clear...

As a test, try any pin other than 13. If you want to use an analog pin just put A in front of the number. For relay use, the code is the same if it's an analog or digital pin.
