My fert calculator gives me these target parameters. Nitrates 5ppm, Phosphates 1ppm, Potassium 20ppm. Sound about right?

Nitrates seem to be about half or less of a good level, and phosphates can be higher without problems. Potassium doesn't really have a recommended range as far as I know, just a minimum amount. Just my opinions.
