It depends on how much light you have, whether the plants have enough of the other nutrients to grow as fast as the light drives them to, and, of course, whether you have fast growers, like stem plants, or slow growers, like anubias. The plants use the nitrates to grow, so if they grow fast they use a lot of nitrates - you may have to dose nitrates to keep up with them.
