Less Frequent Water Changes With EI Dosing?

Recommended Posts

I am currently running a high light co2 injected 17 gallon aquarium. Heavily planted with rotala, bacopa, baby tears, and working on a Monte Carlo carpet. My best estimate is that plants cover 80ish% of the substrate. I am dosing EI with dry salts alternating micros/macros with a weekly 50% water change. I am able to dedicate less and less time to the upkeep of my aquarium because my daughter is now a toddler and requires lots of time/energy so I’m looking for ways to reduce maintenance time. Can I cut dosing in half and perform a water change every other week instead of every week? Or is the math not as simple as that? Thanks for any feedback/suggestions!

@Mmiller2001 thanks for sharing the links! Oddly enough, I’m using those exact fertilizers from GLA but I have been dosing them based on their EI recommendations
