When I've dosed the dry fertilizers with the lights on, the fish have tasted
them, and spit it out pretty quick. Never lost a fish to fertilizer
consumption. But, just to be safer, I have the dosing timer set to dump the
fertilizers in the tank during lights out so the fish never see it anyway.
Also, I know the fish hang out at the back of the tank at night, so the
doser is placed near the front of the tank. The plants are not affected by
the fertilizers being dumped on them. The fertilizers dissolve before lights
on so I never see them either.
