Exactly. The funny thing is that the way most report dosing has little to do with the eventual levels in the water column. Like I said, that should really be the focus. And in general plants hate change and like stability. This is true regardless of the actual nutrient levels. Wild swings are rough on many plants.this is the way of thinking that gave me a eureka moment when playing around with your accumulation spreadsheet.
Front loading takes away the water change variable and you just ‘dose’ your projected accumulation.
