What do you use for your trace fert?

Im getting more into dosing ferts and will be following the EI

i already have 500ml of flourish, but i feel like going powder would be a more economic option long run

the sticky mentions using Plantex CSM+b, however, the website im looking on (Planted Aquarium Fertilizer - Home) is selling Nutritrace CSM + Boron 1lb for 16.00

is this the same stuff just a different brand? have any of yall used it and had good results?

id prefer to buy everything in one place to save on shipping, so would you recommend another place?

they do have the kno3 and KH2PO4 there for what seems to be a reasonable price

1lb KH2PO4 8.00
1lb kno3 5.00
shipping 8.00

Nilocg is an active member here, he is my go to guy for fertz. Ordered a few times, always a quick, smooth pleasant transaction.

It's actually Plantex Nutritrace CSM+B. It's the same thing, Plantex is the brand. 2 different vendors using a different 1/2 of the name. That being said I just ordered from Nilocg again also.
