Fert recomendation wanted
Hi i'm pretty new to planted tanks. I have a standard 15 gallon tank with a soon to arrive planted+ light for it. I also added a DIY CO2 reactor to it today. What ferts does anyone recommend I use? Be specific with brand names etc. Thank you in advance for the input!!

Most of us will recommend dry chemicals, which have no brand names. They are just agricultural grade chemicals. Potassium Nitrate, KNO3, Mono Potassium Phosphate, KH2PO4, and either Plantex CSM+B (trace elements) or Miller's Microplex (trace elements), or Seachem Flourish Comprehensive (trace element mix). If your water is somewhat soft, or if your water supply company water quality report doesn't show any magnesium in the water, add to those a GH Builder, like Seachem Equilibrium. Read _Dosing Regimes_ to find out how to use these.
