Ok I think I already know the answer but is it best to dose in the morning as soon as the lights power up or does it matter?

The C02 starts 1 hour before the lights power on and stops 1 hour before they shut off.

Running (4) 96 watt CF's in a 135 planted, with 4" blend or Amazonia, Eco Complete and Soilmaster select.

I'll get some pictures up soon...

Thanks,
john

I would dose in the morning. It would give the ferts a lot of time to dossolve into the water allowing the plants to start photosynthesizing to their maximum extent.
My thoughts at least

For our commonly available ferts, macros should not matter since they just float around anyway. Some hobbyists find dosing micros at certain times matters, but many others don't -- that's one you'll want to play with to see what you think and find what works for your routine/schedule and tank.
