I have been dreading this thread (ferts required)
Ok so I have a plan, have a substrate (eco complete) and now I need a liquid fert. I'm really nervous as in the past ferts and me led to a lot of algae. Granted I know a lot more than I did when I first started out BUT I'm unsure of which fert will work best for me. The tank is a 50gal, Lots of plants and a carpet (fingers crossed) pressurized co2 and red plants in amongst the mix.
In short, I'm looking for a fert which has no NPK, loves HC cuba and Brazilian Micro sword, will keep my plants red. and is least likely to cause algae.
So far my I have on my list flourish and tropicas new liquid ferts (although they contain far less in terms of "ingredients.") and I guess I'm looking for your input and recommendations.
