hbosman Probably more important to find a consistant time in your schedule so you don't forget. I used to do it in the morning before going to work now, I do it at night, right after feeding the fish.

It didn't seem to make a difference.

I like to dilute both macro and micro nutrients in the treated water I use to top off my tanks. All my tanks are open, so I top them off 2 to 3 times per week. The land and aquatic plants seem to like the feeding routine. The Pennywort grows outside the tank. See attached pics.

Nice setup, my buddy is all about the aquaponics scene and im all about the aquatic scene. We're always trading wet and dry plants. But neither are using dry ferts or much wet ferts at that. Those top plants are thriving. Ill show him a pic of them aand hopefully get him on some fert dosing.

somewhatshocked As long as you've got a constant supply of nutrients in the water, it won't matter what time of day you dose.
