I am going about it the other way around. I want a massive colony of bac to eat all of the ammonia possible and leave the plants so hungry they will convert the nitrate back to ammonia for food. Perhaps this is ill advised and will lead to algae problems??? I really don't understand the relationships yet. I don't even know which, the plants or the bacs, consumes the various forms of nitrogen faster.
