At the very least, you will need

potassium nitrate
potassium phosphate
a trace mix (CSM+B, Iron EDTA, etc)

You can also supplement with things such as calcium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, depending on your water parameters.

I got my dry fertilizers at a hydroponics store; I believe some users also sell them on these forums (I would as well, but I am in Canada, and shipping across the border is a hassle).
