[APD] how to switch from growing my aquascape to maintaining my aquascape.


A Couple of months ago I ask for some help about how to get my 20 gallon
tank growing well, and I was given amazing advice by you guys. Now, my
plants are growing so fast and lush, it's beautiful!

However, since my aquascape is reaching my "ideal", I've started to thinking
about slowing down the growth of the plants. I'm thinking about starting a
process that would take a month or two where I'd decrease that amount of
hours of light it receives every day (12 to 10), decrease the amount of CO2
(I use a pressurized system) I inject, and decrease the amount of
fertilizers I put in (I use kno3, kh2po4, k2so4, and tmg), until I find an
equilibrium I'm happy with.

Now here's my question... should I do this at all? Right now, I've found an
equilibrium where my plants are growing amazing, my fish are healthy, and I
have no algae problem. If it's not broke, should I fix it?

Is it possible to decrease exposure to light, co2, and ferts to decrease the
rate of growth of plants without affecting the health and lushness of the
plants? If the answer is no... I'd prefer not to do it. I love the way my
plants look!

Thanks in advance....
