Ferts, and water changes

I do 20 gallon water changes daily on my 55g/w sump. How does this affect dosing with ferts, and how is it delt with. My assumption is that every day I am diluting the ferts with every water change. I am going to switch to dry ferts when it arrives, but the question on water changes persists.

Do you have any particular reason you are doing daily water changes? Weekly water changes are usually enough unless you have special circumstances.

You will be diluting the fertilizers every time you do a water change.
