so from everything I have read and been told I have come to some final thoughts.
as for dosing I am going to try and do once a week dosage instead of standard dosage.
i am planning to cut the calculated amount by a 1/3rd of each. my end result is: 1/4tsp plantex csm+b (once a week), 1/16tsp kh2po4(once a week), and 1/2tsp kno3 (once a week).
i plan on doing my normal wc at the end of the week which is approx 7g per day over 3 days for a total of 21g wc. my actual tank volume after calculating for substrate volume is approx 60g. which means i am doing 33% wc a week.
Does this plan sound like a good starting point? I will be testing for nitrates to see how things go and will adjust accordingly.
I just want some reassurance that I am not WAY off the ball here.
I have also just recently upd the feeding schedule to once a day from once every other day.
tank light is the 48" finnex planted plus 16" above the substrate. temp is 80 and lights are on for 8 hours a day. WHat time of day should I be dosing the tank? right before lights on? or later or what? does it matter?
here is my tank as of recent
