Can I dose more fertilizer in a planted tank without fish than with fish?

hyperheide

Hi Andy,

I doubt that it makes sense to add more fert. The dosage on the instructions is usually already higher than I would use for my tanks, although I never used flourish, so I don't really know. Anyway, there are a couple of reasons not to overdose: (1) if you have no CO2 or if any other nutrient is lacking then the plants cannot use the additional amount of fert, (2) the fert that cannot be used by the plants will probably cause algaes (they are not bad but maybe unwanted and will just use up the overdosed nutrients, (3)I think it could even damage the plants if you overdose (but not so sure if this is really correct)
