    Isn't iron always going to be low, if the water goes "around and around before exiting the box", same principle as accelerating algal growth by artificially reducing nutrients in the box?

    Perhaps one type of algae contains more water, than another type. So although the growth may be more, the algae goodness taken from the water to grow to that size could actually be less.

    I've read somewhere that algae can grow in 40 parts per billion, for both nitrate and phosphate. Now, that's really low.
