In terms of test kits, the API master test kit is a good start. You can get iron and phosphate if you are concerned; they are nice to have around, but not absolutely necessary.

dry fert explanation

so im running a 90g planted tank......
i have a aquaclear 70 and a sunsun 303b or something like that
i have a 3x54w t5ho catalina aquarium fixture
120 lbs of eco complete and maybe 30lbs of flourite mixed into that
i run my lights on a 8hr timer and run my pressurized co2 on a timer that starts one hr before and ends one hour before my lights. my co2 is running at maybe 2-3bps. i dont currently have a drop checker but am planning on buying one really soon. a friend off of another fish site sent me a sample of some dry ferts to try out on my tank.... he sent me a bottle of the micro macro mix from aquariumfertilizer.com.... i am planning on buying me a order of the micro macro mix and a order of potassium sulfate. will this be all i need or is there other dry ferts i should think about ordering????

and what all kind of test kits do i need i have the api master kit or whatever it is and a seachem iron test kit, what else should i pick up cause im really new to ferts and dont exactly understand what everything is yet
