I've been using Equilibrium to raise GH, do I need another source for micros?

During weekly large water change, I have been using Equilibrium to raise GH.

Seachem - Equilibrium


Do I also need CSM+B?

Hi ChrisX,

Welcome to TPT!

Yes, Seachem Equilibrium is an excellent GH booster and source for Ca, Mg, and K but it only has a few other 'micro-nutrients' and does not contain all of the micro-nutrients plants require. I use Plantex CSM+B and Seachem Comprehensive as sources of my micro-nutrients.
