No offense intended, but you just might be making mountains out of mole hills. To be concerned about small values and their conversion rates serves little purpose. Heck, way back in the day, we knew nothing of BB and yet somehow the hobby survived and fish grew. Okay, there were some losses, but life went on!
Simply put, BB will quickly convert ammonia to nitrites (nitrosomona) and nitrites into nitrates (nitrospira). Tank nitrates <=25ppm is okay. To go a step further, you're in the right place.
Fast growing plants (especially floating plants) will convert N2 into plant tissue that is later removed by trimming. Modest routine partial water changes will further ensure ongoing high water quality.

What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg from a chicken.
