Aqua Soil's yellow = Nutrients?
Amazonia Aqua Soil's humus can turn the water yellow. Frequent water changes, time, and a good carpet will eventually eliminate it, from what I've read.
My question is, is there any benefit to not doing water changes to clear it? Meaning, is the humus-colored water nutrient-dense? (Currently my tank is one-day old with no fish, shrimp, and/or snails [presumably].)
To state my question even more clearly, is the yellow from the Amazonia just a color, or is it also indicative of nutrients that will eventually be absorbed by the plants?
