The nutrients available from fish food is barely enough for low light tanks. Usually it does supply enough N and P, and usually most micros.
But when you have more light and less fish the plants need more nutrients. If you want to stick with wet or are willing to start with dry does not matter. I would start adding all the ferts that you are not already using at the rate suggested on the bottle, then adjust as needed.
Fast growing plants that are just sitting there will take off a lot faster once they have the fertilizers that are now limiting their growth. You might not notice much improvement in slow growing plants.

Without these nutrients, plants will not do well.
For more information regarding fertilization and plant well being, please take a look at my guide to planted aquariums, linked in my signature below.

|Knotyoureality||I've been pretty happy with the Pfertz line. Since my total tankage is under 100g, it's reasonably priced and convenient. Micro/macro mix in liquid, root tabs for my heavy feeders. Was very happy to find the tabs are easy to break into smaller pieces for more precise placement.|

What about your N and P?
You can always use Seachem's commercially available line of products if you do not want to use dry fertilizers.

Liquid fert suggestion?
I currently dose Seachem Flourish for micros and Tetra FloraPride for Fe and K. I'm thinking that 0I may not be giving my plants enough nutrients since they haven't been growing that much, so what do you guys think I should start adding? I'm not really looking into dry ferts right now, so liquid ferts only, please.
