BigJohnny, I just thought of this as well. I've been running dirty method for months now and kept worrying about the same. I dont have any SPS to worry about but I wanted to test NO3 and PO4. I was SURE they're be off the charts. What did I find to my surprise?

NO3 = 0.1
P04 = 0.00

I've been overloading with food, no water changes, no skimming for months. I do have a functioning DSB that I give credit to the low NO3
