Nutrient transport mode ?

This is my graph of the dimming channel I am using for my tunzes.

Using the nutrient transport mode is the % supposed to drop down below the set min? I have it set for 30% minimum but as you can see its still dropping down to where the pump doesn't run. Also there are times where it will go to 0% for a few minutes.

My code reads like this
ReefAngel.PWM.SetDaylight( NutrientTransportMode (30,90,920,False) );

If I need to post the whole code I can but I can't do it from my phone right now.

There is something else going on with your channel, because the NTM waveform is not like that.
I just simulated it on a controller using only the function you posted and this is what I got:

Can you post the entire code so we can see if there is something else using the same channel?

Yea I can post the whole code in a few hours. I am using 2 modes one for night and one for day but the NTM is the only mode where the pump drops below 30%. The other mode you are seeing on my graph is reef crest but the % is always >30 on that mode

But your graph answers my question because the line does fall below 30%
