Perhaps invest in a Nitrate and Phosphate liquid test kit. Even if not extremely precise, it's a good exercise to find out where the levels are at and how they develop over time. It will tell you w your Nitrates are out, and help you to get them to 10-20 ppm. Etc.

There are just too many variables for us to tell you "yes" or "no". Your tap water parameters, plant density, stocking/feeding levels all affect that.
