    Hello everyone,

    Here is a probably silly question I am pretty sure someone else has already asked in the past for, but since I couldn't find any discussion on the forums on this topic by using the search feature, I am posting it here (again): is there any preferred time of the day to add fertilizers in the tank? In my case, my Co2 system starts at around 5am in the morning until 8pm and my lights turn on at around 1pm until 9pm. What time of the day would you suggest to add ferts? Or that really doesn't matter?

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

    Fab.

    I suppose if I had to chose, right after the lights come on.

    Thank you Tom. I have been dosing in early morning for a long time because of my work schedule, but now my time is more flexible and so I can definitively do what you are suggesting.

    Thanks!
