no don't leave it. How are you removing the nitrates from your system if it's been the same for 3 weeks?

If you don't want to do your PWCs every week, you can do them every other week.

don't listen to that lfs do the ten percent changes that were suggeted in the previous posts. Doing water changes will never hurt.
