I love branches 1&2 together, but since you're only using one I would go with the first branch.
I was wondering about that because I have heard about people over fertilizing. I decided I wasn't really going to fertilize at all until I filled the tank, but maybe I should...

Naturally, my next question is how much should I does? I can easily take the current water out and add new water with fertilizer in it, but I don't want to add to much.

Here is what I currently have for fertilizer.

Today, I ordered SeaChem Flourish line of fertilizers:

But they will not arrive for another week or so.

Should I wait to SeaChem Flourish or add what I currently have?
