    If you feel the need to do multiple water changes during the week, please feel free to do so. I've had personal tanks in the past where I've done this to prepare a tank for competition photos or just to maintain good water quality in heavily stocked tanks. As far as fertilization is concerned, in tanks with a high nutrient demand, the majority of what you add will be consumed in a day or two depending on your dose. My recommendation would be to not dose the day before a water change to make sure your plants take up as much of the nutrients as possible before replacing the water.

    started a topic Partial water changes

    Partial water changes

    Good morning,

    I have done the cleaning and partial water change together with the seventh day of the dosing calendar, however, I feel the need to do another cleaning in the middle of the calendar, is it indicated? Is there a better day?

    I haven't been cleaning in the calendar half because I fear wasting the fertilization that is possibly still active in the water, are the dosages I make every day consumed on the same day or are they cumulative during the week / dosing calendar?

    Thanks a lot
Working...
