Default Need help choosing chemicals for crystal red tank.

Hello planted tank

Just looking into what chemicals I will need for my soon to be set up 2 foot crs tank. I will be using my tap water for wc ect the parameter of the water are...

Ph: 7.5ish
Kh: 3-4
Gh: 8-9
Nitrates: 0-20ppm
Nitrites:0
Ammonia:0

From what I've heard these parameters aren't too bad except it is a whole different story when I want crs especially when I WANT CO2 as love hc.

So from what I've read crs parameters should be...
Ph:6.2-6.8
Kh:0-2
Gh:5
Nitrate:0-20
Nitrite:0
Ammonia:0

So does anybody know what chemicals I should use to achieve these parameter. By the way could you also suggest amount of co2 going into the and weather I should or shouldn't put solenoid on it

Thanks
