1/2 strength and every other week WC

Hey guys,

I guess I'm getting lazy, but I'm tired of doing WC every weekend. I'd like to switch to every other weekend. I'm thinking that if I just 1/2 my fert dosing that I should be ok, yes?


btw, other than some Nerites, there is no livestock in the tank.

thanks for your thought, Todd

I don't see a problem with that.

That would be okey! If I have to switch to do WC every other week, I will decrease the ferts dosing together with the time the light's on.

I would also adjust lights / CO2 down as well to avoid imbalances.
