fertilizer that can be applied daily

I am currently using FloraPride but it doesn't have directions for applying daily. I hear it is better to put fertilizers in daily. FloraPride has me put in monthly which doesn't seem right. And then it gets complicated when I change the water.

Any suggestions for a good fertilizer that can be put into tank daily?

I am currently using distilled water as my home water is way too hard.

I'm having a lot of success with Easy Green from Aquariumcoop.com. I think you can dose daily in small amounts.

Ill take the snails from the bottom of the tank.

Actually you can dose anything daily. You just have to count. For example if you should add 10 ml once a week, daily you should add ~1,5 ml or you could make a weaker solution with RO water.
For me best way to add ferts is to buy them dry and do your own solutions. In Poland for dry ferts for a year I paid ~50 zł (13 $) and for liquid ferts (some not so great brand) I would pay around 500 zł (130 $)... It's obvious what to choose, it's a little harder when you start, but it's as good as those greatest brands and much much cheaper.
I recommend making your own solutions, but I do not recommend adding dry ferts directly to your tank with spoons. It's really estimative (heh, good for EI, right?)...

Been spoonin in the dry fertz for a few year's now at 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 tsp at a time usually once or twice a week.
Fishes sometimes try and eat the stuff but spit it right back out.
Just as easy though to scoop out a cup of aquarium water and spoon the dry fertz into it and stir before dosing.

PPS Pro (and regular, I want to say) are designed for daily dosing.

That said, if I had access to Easy Green, I'd go that route.
