    I have been reading a lot of Tom's articles lately about fertilized planted tank people are able to keep Phosphate levels at 2-3 ppm without algae. It has also become apparent this helps eliminate green spot algae to some people. I would Like to take a poll Please :) I think flow and bio filtration is more important then it may seem at first. Planted tanks always seem so peaceful and still :)
