No, it should be fine.due to work I’m gonna miss the op of doing my regular water changes, and don’t really trust the missus to not flood the lounge. Does it matter missing 1? Both heavily planted 140l and 200l. Been running since last Sept.
I think this is the most important point, while water changes aren't the only way to go when maintaining a nice aquarium, the reason they are used by most is that it is the most simple and reliable way. You don't really need any understanding of the ecology etc, just take water out and put fresh back infrequent and large water changes are still the easiest and most reliable way of maintaining a healthy planted tank, and preventing disease and algae.
While I do like Diana Walstad's book and learned quite a bit from it, the whole approach just seems as such a big gamble, that I would rather just do the regular WC's to remove toxins/pollutants, obvious debris and decay and dose some ferts and be confident that all is good, instead of relying on the long shot of obtaining some mythical rarely obtainable self-sustaining balance - like the uncle who smoked 3 packs a day drank half a bottle of Scotch a day and still got to be 99Not my kind of husbandry but I guess the proof is in the pudding. Diana Walstad is correct after all...
