Could be all you need for micros. It is a pretty good product IMO. I like Tropica Plant Nutrition better. I get much better growth and less algae with TPN than the Flourish product.

Get a small bottle and give it a try. If you don't like it try something else.

Seachem's micro nutrient formula is called Flourish Trace

Their Flourish formula also has the some of the trace nutrients in it (but not all components of trace formula.

Trace is just mineral water, it is absolutely worthless, unless you sell Seachem products.

Flourish Comp. is what the OP needs for a micronutrient solution.

Agreed. That being said, all you buy with Flourish at all is water, with a dash of ferts. You could spend 20 bucks and get all the dry ferts you need for 3 years, with simple easy directions to mix them up into liquid if you really need that...

That being said, can you share your source for getting 3 years worth of ferts for $20. Mixing directions would be great too

On your average tank that will last you 1-2 years with no problem. I used that package for well over a year on a 55g tank with lots to spare when I took it down.

aquariumfertilizer.com has it too.

There are about 30,000 threads with instructions here.

I used the full line of Seachem products on my 90g for about 5 months. Things looked great. I just followed their dosing schedule with the exception of Excel. Switched to dry ferts and they work fine but I preferred the tank on the Seachem line. Trimming some stems twice a week is getting old. lol

It raises an interesting questions: if you have very soft water and use Equilibirum when doing a WC, can you still use Trace during the week?

There's no basement in the alamo.
