My tank is a 120 gal 2x250 hqi 8 k. heavy plant load and presurized co2 with 2 diffusers. I have been using sea chem and brightwell fets but wanting to try the dry ferts.

See the sticky thread in the Fertilizer forum. GH booster may be optional and iron may be optional. Usually you don't need the potassium sulfate often either as the phosphate and nitrate salts have potassium as the other half!

Read the ingredients in the products you are using, and figure out how you are currently dosing.

Then buy similar ratios of dry ferts.
