SteveUK said:I managed to count 4 shrimplets this morning Added a Nerite snail to help out with glass cleaning. GSA is starting to take hold a little, so going to do a water change this evening.
My dosing regime starting this week will be:
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday - 1ml TPN+
Monday, Wednesday, Friday - 1ml TPN
1.5ml Easy Carbo daily.
Rest/Water change Sunday. Anyone think this is overkill? Maybe drop the TPN to twice a week perhaps?
So do you mean no ferts or Carbo on the day you do the water change? Isn't that the day you need it most? If you want a 'rest day' (rest for who - you, the plants or the shrimp?) then wouldn't it be best to have it on the day before the water change, when there's likely to be a bit more nutrients in the tank from the weeks dosing? Then you can do the water change and immediately dose those delicious nutrients for the plants. Or will you do the water change after lights out on the Sunday, and then dose before lights on on Monday?
Just a thought - I'm not really familiar with the point of a 'rest day', or an expert on them!
