Mathematical approach to waterchanges

#1
Hello,

I developped a formula that enables us to calculate the concentration of nitrates as a function of population density and waterchanges.

Don't hesitate to give comments and to ask questions.

Enjoy reading.

Hi Maanvis, you have accustomed the forum to high expectations whenever you post and this one is right up there... a very interesting subject.

I had to print it so I could bring it along with me tomorrow and find sometime to read it (I hate reading good material on my phone!).

I'll definitely get back on this later.

Thanks from all of us!

Hi Maanvis (Pascal)... It is a coincidence that a very bright and beloved math teacher I had in College in Venezuela also had Pascal as his last name. This was in the late 70's early 80's.

Honestly, I skimmed over the reading, my days of interpreting and solving formulas were left behind a long time ago, though I still remember just enough to mix my meds and dose my water correctly when preparing to treat some fish.

But in the end, your conclusion, small but frequent water changes rounds it all up.

A very important issue is the relation between pH and ammonia.
