Very true. After CO2, every 3 days is fine even at very fast growth rates
IME/IMO. I've never seen any advantage in plant growth or less algae growth
by adding it every day or drip etc. The only advantage is not remembering to
add it and this I think is more what many are getting at here. "I want to be
a consistent doser, not have to remember and want to be lazy". Remembering
and work do have their rewards though..........
"opinion pendulum", I love that term!
