    Hi Guys

    New member here! I was wondering on the 7 day when you do water change, should I turn off co2? I don't have solenoid so I keep my co2 on 24/7. Thanks in advance!

    Might be a good idea to turn it off while you drain and fill the tank.

    But if you mean not run CO2 on the last day of the week say if you skip ferts one day or whatever, absolutely run CO2 that day. Run co2 every single day!

    Its best to dose macros right back after the water change. The 6th day is better to skip, or

    In other words, water change day is day one

    1. Water change - macros
    2. micros
    3. macros
    4. micros
    5. macros
    6. micros
    7. skip (but run the CO2!)
