The water change should be done weekly, on the same day, example every Sunday or something. Then dose Flourish Comp the following morning.
On the substrate, what fish are in this tank, or intended? Some are best with sand, some could have fine gravel. Plants are fine in either. I have switched all but one of my tanks over from fine gravel to sand. I use Quikrete Play Sand as it is not rough, and it looks like the sand in the Amazon so it is authentic. My substrate fish like corys seem to love it.
