How soon after a water change should I add easy green?

Recommended Posts

There is no hard set 'roles', for myself I like consistency in my schedule. So, water change days my tanks get nothing but conditioner and fresh water. As for the rest of the week I add fertilizer before the lights come on. Figuring this gives the plants nutrients for the whole day, not just a portion of the day.

the reason being that carbon acts like a sponge. it absorbs everything it can from the water. after a couple days carbon will have absorbed pretty much all it can. so while you can add ferts right away, some of it will be absorbed by the carbon.

Ah! Didn’t know that! Makes sense ! Thanks for explaining!
