Beautiful display and meticulous setup.You and I must think alike! I have set up an auto water change and reverse osmosis water tanks for similar set up as you. I have yet to set up a display tank but have a system running automated for small daily water changes, 3 gallons per day on a test bed 40B that is growing plants pretty well. I’m also autodosing all in one fertilizer (Thrive) once per day before lights on also, along with some extra KH2PO4 every other day because when I measured P it was basically zero. Extra iron once a week (as a guess) also for the reds.
While not doing 10% daily water changes, I’m trying to use PPS Pro levels of dosing so I was thinking as much water change may not be needed. This could be easily changed however. Also the water removed goes to various potted plants and into the garden as it is dumped into a bucket in a utility sink for this purpose.
Anyway, if you have any more insight into daily water changes and how you are going about dosing I sure would appreciate it!
