Hi,
So I've just set up a phyto farm and forgot to get f2 fertiliser, before I sent off for some I had a thought. The whole point of using ferts is to provide nutrients to the phyto? And a protine skimmer's job is to remove nutrients from a reef, so why can't I theoretically use skimmate instead of f2 fertiliser? The only reason I can see for this not working is if f2 fertiliser contains special chemicals vital to the phyto, has anyone tried this before? And if so did it work?

Thanks,
Ethan
