How does this look for beginner ferts?

Hey guys..I tried to do as much research on previous threads about where to buy fertilizers cheap and where to buy them locally...

Most threads say that is the place to go for affordable fertilizers. I saw this package that they offer.

The product description says its "The complete package!", which sounds pretty sweet to me for 20 bucks. Thats how I like my packages - cheap and complete.

So would this be sufficient to get a first timer up and running? Im playing with gravel over here so Ive been told 'dosing the water column' is essential. Would this dose my column? Id like to grow java, pygmy chain sword and valisneria and keep them green, preferably. Thanks guys.

I was looking at that same package today and I was comparing it to a thread that talks about dosing and all of the macro and micro nutrients match up. I think its perfect for beginners

From what I have seen, if GLA offers a "all in one" package of something, you can be pretty sure it is complete. Complaints about GLA seem to be as rare as an ugly Amano aquascape.

I've been looking at this package as well. Anyone know how long it would dose a 90p with a 150w MH and injected Co2? Tank is full of Blyxa J and Rotala M.
