Do my Victron Lead Carbon Batteries need equalizing the same as Lead Acid

Im finding it difficult to find useful information on charging and taking care of my new Lead Carbon batteries. The data sheet doesn't give any info on equalizing. Should I keep my Multiplus settings the same as sealed batteries. I really don't want to damage my new batteries......Martin

At "normal "usage an equalize isnt needed. Only when the charging is regular done less then perfect and/or the battery suffers from deep discharge.

At max 50% DoD and a 100% full charge at least every week/two weeks i would recommend not to equalize.
