    Hi , im new to planted tanks, and am looking into getting into dosing by following the EI, i have a 26g bowfront that im wanting to dose dry ferts in seperatly instead of using an all in one

    im looking for
    and Trace
    i have a bottle of seachem flourish but thought it might be cheaper in the long run to use dry trace

    do you sell them in 1lb increments? If so how much would they be and what would shipping be to area code 29841 in the US?

    Hey NilocG,

    I think you are online on the TPT forums and thought I would shoot you a question(s) regarding Thrive and Thrive+

    I am trying to go for a iwagumi type tank and want to dose using on of your products (currently using your NPK+M separate bottles but, not sure if it helping)

    My tank will most likely consist of dwarf hair grass or HC Cuba as a foreground with possible rotala macandra and whatever grows lol.

    Would Thrive+ (with the extra iron be needed?) or stick with Thrive?

    I will wanting to keep shrimps in there as well with fish so, would the extra iron in Thrive+ bring any negative results?

    I will also be purchasing Enchance for my other tank with shrimps and (hoping) for the dwarf hairgrass to carpet. I cant spend another pressurized co2 system so, I thought the Enhance would suffice.

    Your thoughts would help!

    Thank you.

    I am new to the forum and am researching how to start a planted tank. I plan on using Eco-Complete Planted Aquarium Substrate topped with flourite black sand. What additional fertilizers should I be using and how much is it?

    Hey! I ran across a post of yours saying that you used to make mineralized topsoil to sell.. this may be a lost cause, as I believe the post was from four years ago, but hey. I was just wondering if you still did? I'm looking to buy some for my 30 gallon and I can't seem to find any. Thanks!

    I think it was a very old post. I realized it after I messaged.

    I'm starting a 120 gallon high tech planted tank using EI dosing. You said something in a thread about creating a solution to use and I was asking what the steps were for doing that. If that's outdated info, sorry for bugging you.

    Hi - I have been searching on EI fertilization in a high tech tank and saw your post about making a solution to make it easier. Would you be willing to share how that's done?

    I would like to order a bottle of your thrive all in one.

    Let me know when to pay.

    Anyone know how long they usually take to ship? My order is marked as Awaiting Fulfillment still and wondered how long he usually takes. I am only wondering being I am faking EI with liquid ferts and will run out soon and need to know about how much to reduce to keep dosing until this gets here.


    Going out tomorrow, he was out of town.
    Thanks Again NilocG!!
