As the article makes clear, these are not sufficient on their own, except as mentioned above.

With adequate water changes and in a "balanced" system these substances will never build up.
I guess we agree to disagree.

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
