[APD] ferts on a new tank


I will step up here and wait your reply :-) The reason I would see it... would be the same as terrestrial plants and more like your lawn grass. If you water and feed your lawn grass too often, too much, there is no need for them to develop strong root systems... if they have to go hunt for water and food they will out of necessity and survival produce a better root system. If you would keep the ferts out of the new tank for a while... it would translate to me that the result would be the same. If the ferts were in the water column the plants would have no need to produce a nice healthy root system.

Make sense?

Several folks suggest that you do not fertilize a new plant tank for the first few week/s. My question is **why** not?
