That doesn't sound right to me, because we are talking about a loaded substrate directly available to the plants. If it makes you feel any better about EI in my new setup (see link in sig) I also have a ton of Seiryu stone and very little plant mass and dosing normal EI levels using NPK and Seachem Flourish Comp. I have a Finnex 24/7 CC light that provides just 3 hours of max light and my plants are all clean even the slow growing Anubias and Ferns.
