I think CSM is an agricultural trace element fertilizer, sold in 50 pound or larger bags. But, I never manage to remember who manufactures it. I doubt that you could obtain it in small quantities. You could Email Greenleaf Aquarium and Aquarium Fertilizer.com and ask them. They might even have some to sell in small quantities.

Hi happi,

CSM now called Nurtitrace CSM is manufactured by Plantex in Canada. I agree with Hoppy, check those two suppliers and possibly Colin (nilocg) here on the forum, and see if they have some without the Boron added.

75 Gallon, 2X55W AH Supply CF 8800K, 1XFluval F&P 2.0 48"/59W, 2X Marineland 350 Magnum filters; 45 Gallon Tall, 96Watt AH Supply CF 6700K, 1X Marineland 350 Magnum filter; 30 Gallon Long; Fluval F&P 2.0 36"/46W, Marineland C-220 filter; 20 Gallon, 1X26W AH Supply LED kit, Marineland C-160 filter; all with Press. CO2 and (Calcined) Montmorillonite Clay
