    Ok I'm leaving for 2 weeks starting on 8/15. I am on EI dosing now. Can I do the following for my 80G?

    Do 50% water change and prune the plants:

    1/ 1 Tspoon KNO3
    2/ 1/4 T spoon PO4 (dry)
    3/ 15ml TMG
    4/ low lights about 110w
    5/ CO2 normal at 30ppm.
    6/ Food timer or someone can feed them when I'm away.

    Is this ok and do I need to add anything else? If required I can have someone do another dosing of points 1 to 3 after a week, but no water change.

    Help would be appreciated.

    As long as you (or the person feeding/dosing while you're away) don't way overdose, skipping a water change shouldn't be a big deal. Do a water change right when you get back to get the ferts back in order and I'm sure you will be fine. I would definitely ask the person to dose ferts for you while you were away though. It shouldn't be too difficult for them. If they can't do it everyday, increase the amount they add.......

    Less light will help(less growth rate), dose less(75%)

    Thanks for the reply Tom and Fosteder.

    I'll keep the lights at about 80 watts. Dosing do you want me to do 75% of my above stated dosing? Shall i leave the CO2 at 30ppm? Also can I have someone dose this same amout after a week? I can keep a 500ml bottle PMDD ready.

    Cheers.
