I ordered the dry fert pack from which is Potassium Nitrate, Potassium Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate and Plantex CSM+B. I'll order my plants in a few days after giving my filter and water a chance to settle. Thanks guys for the info.
You want to get some phosphates hence kh2PO4, Mono potassium phosphate. Also, MgSO4, also known as epsom salts, get a ton at wallgreens for like $2.
