Question Fertilizer question?

Hello all,

My question is in regards to two different fertilizers, I would like to start using fertilizers and am wondering about these different choices.

First I have the package deal from GLA:
http://www.greenleafaquariums.com/aq...ertilizer.html
which seems to be dry(powder) that I have to mix with water first off? am I correct with this assumption? or do I add the powder directly into the tank?

Then I'm looking at the Flourish kits both the "enhancer" and the "fundamentals":
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...7&pcatid=12787
Which appear to come already pre-mixed.

Any input into either of these, whether you like one over the other and why? better results? any advice would be helpful.

Thanks.

You can go either way, dry or liquid. In the end dry cost a lot less. I just take a little water out of the tank half a cup or so and put the power in and mix then dump it in over the spray bar.

When you buy liquid ferts you are paying for shipping the water. I buy dry ferts ( www.aquariumfertilizer.com ) and use tap water to make a stock solution. Much cheaper.
