Brightwell Aquatics FlorinMulti

Has anyone used this or recommend it? I am setting up a planted tank, mostly low light plants, and no CO2 and was thinking about getting some.

That stuff is a trace element mix with added potassium. No nitrogen or phosphorous. It might work for a low light tank, assuming you have enough fish to provide nitrogen and phosphorous from their poop. I wouldn't use it, but that's because buying powdered KNO3, KH2PO4 and CSM+B is many times cheaper, and well proven to work well.

I will have plenty of fish I believe....5 dwarf platies, 4 juvie dwarf platies, 4 red cherry shrimp, 2 nerite snails, and once set up a bn pleco in a 25 gal. I really didn't want to deal with dry ferts. Wanted to do an easy all in one liquid if I could. Thought that would be good since it would have added stuff for the shrimp.

Would the above provide enough poop to sub for the nitrogen and phosphorous?

If the pleco is well fed, with enough wood to chew on, I suspect you would have plenty of poop from just him.
