Thanks for all the replies! I wrote a lengthy reply a while ago, only to find out that I had to log in again due to a crappy connection and now it's gone =b
I forgot to mention that the tank doesn't have occupants yet, so I figured I'd give it a shot albeit a small shot.
I did a little bit of research and found out that both ferts are from the same company, so it's a safe bet that both N are Urea Nitrogen based. I did a bit of asking around and found out that most hardware and gardening stores don't carry KNO3, it being a component for dynamite and some fishermen actually use it =\ sad really...
Also, I forgot to mention that the tanks have no occupants yet.
I dissolved a teaspon of the complete ferts in the tank (the instructions says two tablespoons with 20ml water) and mixed it in. I came back to check on it several hours later and observed that the ludwigia repens was pearling, it's the first time I noticed it doing that ever since I planted it a couple of weeks ago. I'm not going to risk it when I put the fishes in the tank though, not until I find out what my parameters are exactly (no test kits yet, would've bought one earlier but the LFS was closed since it's a holiday).
I'm going to try the slow release ferts next after I do a 75% water change and I'll report back with the results.
Darkcobra, I did mean Copper. Thanks for pointing it out. The manufacturers listed it as Zu so I assumed the symbol was correct. =b
