Vacation-fertilizer

What would be the ideal way to fertilize my tank while I was away? I was thinking that it would be best to maybe not fertilize and cut back on the light and the co2 while I was gone. I am dosing Green Leaf dry ferts (micro and Macros) every other day. What do some of you do or what would you do in a similar situation?

Thanks
JML

Sounds good. Looking forward to the results. I am not going away until February but I need to plan on what I need to do

Tried this approach, and came back 3 weeks to an algae farm.
Then again, I was gone for 3 weeks.
Hoping it works better for you.
