When using amazonia, unless you have plants needing extra care, i wont suggest more than once a week. Thread is a thread by rajeev on fertilizer dosing. Please check that

ADA leaches heavily in the beginning, so I would rather use carbon for first couple of weeks and start regular dosing after a month.
