Hi folks, I have been playing with my 75gl tank for years enjoying very nice plant grow and sometimes experiencing pain from algae blooming. So far I have been doing a 50% water change every 2 weeks, but I am thinking that maybe doing it once a week could improve the status of my plants even more and reduce algae that are always "around the corner" in my own experience.
What do you suggest? What's the best water change schedule for a planted tank? I couldn't find a specific answer on the forums, so I decided to post a specific question about it.
Here is my current setup and method:
75gl tank, pressurized Co2 (3-4 bps), 120w light 8 hr/day, complete Seachem line dosed as instructed every day, mixed population of tetras, other small fish and shrimps (about 50 fish, 60-100 shrimps), about 12 kind of plants pretty much all growing well (but I think some of them can improve and be completely algae free).
I am open to your advice!
