Automated Water Change
I recently tore down my 30 gallon reef tank and am setting up a low tech planted tank instead. Reusing some of my saltwater equipment I think I can set up a half gallon automatic water changes daily. Using a dosing pump and Auto top off. Would also us the dosing pump to dose excel daily and thrive once or twice a week. Coming from a reef, was hoping to make this as low maintenance as possible.
My question is: Is there any benefit to doing small daily water changes in a planted tank? Or would it be more of a hindrance, taking nutrients out of the tank? Was thinking of dosing excel and thrive in the am right before lights on, then doing the water change at night.
