Try the "1/2 method" it works good for me. For example, you have a 10 gallon tank. When topping off with water, keep track. After adding 5 gallons of top-off, change the tank.

Why do you have to change the water? Arent you just flushing your nutrients?

1/2 method is good but personally i do it every 7 days religiously and make sure your water temp stays below 75, i keep mine 67-72.
