Why Alternate trace/macro's?
In browsing fertilizer threads, it's apparent that alternating the addition of trace elements to macro's is the preferred method. On the other hand, in maintaining reef aquaria, as well as in nature, a constant level of water conditions is the norm.
So thus the question.....Why not add all the materials daily? (or maybe spaced 1 hour apart). What actually happens that has caused the mindset of "alternating days"? It would appear to me that if dry fert's are added at 8 a.m. on day #1, there's a concentration curve that bottoms out 2 days later, when they're added again. It would seem more beneficial to the plants (and possibly the fish) to have that concentration level be constant.
