 50  %  water  change  every  third  day  for  the  first  3  weeks.
 
 I  would  not  dose  for  the  first  6  months  and  it  also  depends  on  what  you  want  to  grow  in  them.
 
 Regards
 Prem

 Unni,  there  is  no  guide  line.  It's  all  depends  on  the  setup  and  plants  requirements.  I  am  also  very  new  with  AS  but  got  some  interesting  experience.
 
 1st  Jan,  opened  2  new  ASII  9  Ltr  pack  and  setup  one  20G  and  a  1  feet  CUBE.
 
 20G  tank:  Running  with  5+  WPG  for  6  hrs,  Unlimited  BPS  CO2.  Was  dosing  K,  CSM+B,  Fe  everyday.  Within  15  days  everything  melted  out  with  very  high  N  deficiency.  Plants  are  Glosso,  Vivipara,  Staurogyne  Sp,  parvula,  HM  etc  etc.  I  could  not  do  anything  as  it  was  too  fast.  Checked  the  water  parameter  and  found,  tank  running  out  of  N.
 
 1Feet  CUBE:  Started  same  day  with  36watt  CFL  8-12  hrs  a  day,  Seachem  Excel  4ml  every  night  along  with  K,  CSM+B,  Fe  every  night.  Plants  are   Staurogyne  Sp,  parvula,  HC  CUBA,  Flame  and  weeping  moss.  It's  now  almost  a  month.  Plants  are  growing  fast  and  no  N  dosing  till  date.
 
 For  both  the  tanks,  I  was  doing  60%  water  change  every  3  days.

 Hi  Unni
 
 Try  the  ADA  Online  Aquajournal
 
 To  Add:  Another  key  element  is  the  photoperiod  during  initial  setup  ,  i  start  with  4  hrs  and  every  week  bump  it  up  by  2  hrs  ........  so  after  4  weeks  i  am  at  the  10  hrs  mark.  The  theorey  behind  this  is  ....  in  a  nwely  planted  tank  the  plants  are  still  getting  adjusted  and  settling  down  and  they  will  not  be  using  the  full  nutrients  released  by  AS  ,  thats  why  they  recommend  major  water  changes  during  intial  setup  ...........  also  since  your  plants  are  just  settling  down  ,  if  you  give  the  full  photoperiod  initially  algae  issues  tend  to  creep  up.
