Entirely new here but have a low-to-medium light setup. What types and where from do you all get your dry ferts?

Pfertz for a 5g (thinking only Nitrogen, roots and micros) that would last years seems much more convenient than mixing dry ferts.

Dry ferts (from the little i know) always made more sense in my head for larger tanks with high light. But for nano tanks (especially low-to-medium light), Pfertz seems more convenient considering the savings are negligible at the use-rate we're talking about.

Also, in case it was mentioned already, the Pfertz discount is after applying a coupon code.

As for pros and cons its just more work vs. higher price.

I may upgrade my tank to high light + Co2 pending light selection in which case I will likely use dry ferts.
