AVN These are the fertilizers I use personally.

No clue what's in it specifically, but it's been formulated for a wide variety of aquarium plants by someone who has been in the hobby for decades. Save yourself the hassle of buying dry fertilizers, measuring, and mixing. I've been using this for months and all my plants have been growing steadily, it is much more cost efficient than liquid fertilizers.

FriendsNotFood Awesome, thanks for the Yamato green recommendation! Seems like they have options for macros and micros in one bottle.

somewhatshocked FriendsNotFood: There are several forum sponsors, including Pfertz, that sell liquid fertilizers. Check them out.

But I have to second buying dry ferts and mixing them yourself. You'll save a mountain of cash and will have a supply that will last a really long time.

Avoid anything like Tetra Flora, as you're just paying for water and a tiny bit of fertilizer.

MChambers There also are powdered macro-micro mixes that are easy to use. Just mix up a batch every few months.

Hello Friends...

Depending on your tank lighting, there are a couple of good liquids. If you have low to moderate light, I'd recommend TetraFlora. If you have stronger light, then Yamato Green has a good product. I've used both with good results. Both are concentrated and I'd start with half of the recommended dose and go from there.
