I seem to remember Strontium supplementation also being necessary as confirmed by scientific studies, until further studies found Strontium to be toxic. It also seems that Nitrite readings in marine systems are still highly utilized, despite the fact that Nitrite is not toxic at a pH over 7.4.
There are a great many things in this hobby that evolve, you are exactly correct. This is the reason that we need to rely on the personal experiences of those who have consistently duplicated success over long periods. These are the people we need to look towards and ask HOW they have duplicated these results. I feel that Byron is himself a good reference, and is somebody that probably deserves a bit more credit as an authority on the subject being discussed.
Thank you everyone for your knowledge and information. I see the logic on having less agitation in an aquarium to prevent loss of co2. Starting my first planted aquarium will take a bit of trial and error i suppose but thanks to everyonbe here at least i have a base to start with.
