Hi WC ,


      Go through recent archived postings. There have been lots of
discussion re water changes and the ecosystem in an aquarium.

Subject: [APD] Water change for planted tank

To: aquatic-plants at actwin_com




I've got kind of a stupid question. I know for sure that one of the reasons
to we do water changes in a established tank is to reduce the nitrate level
in your tank. But what happens when you put a lot of fast growing plants in
your tank? I would think that these undemanding plants will use up the
excess nitrates.

You can just add more water as it evaporates from the tank and fertilizer
for the plants. Do you still need to do water changes in this case?
