Help with EI dosing

721 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Diana
Hi everyone. I'd like to start EI dosing on my planted discus tanks. However, with discus, I need to do 2-3 water changes per week. Does anyone know if there is a way to modify the EI dosing regiment to compensate for multiple WC's per week? I'd really appreciate any ideas, suggestions, or references you could give me.

Just start dosing.
Here is how I did it when I needed to do extra water changes:

Add the right level of ferts to the new water on water change day. Does not matter if it is a 'macro' day or a 'micro' day, just add that days' ferts. You could also dose right after a water change.

Monitor the plant growth for a couple of weeks and see if you need to alter the basic plan.
