Be careful of “use it all syndrome”, it’s fun adding new gadgets/additives and trying to solve problems, but you can do the opposite (and strip your tank too much or overdose). Something like running GFO all the time is a red flag to me on new tanks for this “syndrome”.

Have a clear goal for every piece of equipment (or additive) and don’t be afraid to cut back to raise nutrients, stabilize, to see how things respond.
