Thrive.. really all in one or...

So I have been using the Thrive product for a bit and so far pretty happy with the product. I have a 50gal, heavily planted tank, FloraMax substrate, with 2x Finnex Planted+ CC, and pressurized CO2.

Is Thrive from Nilocg really all in one or should I consider additional supplementation?

Thrive is truly an all in one as it contains most of the necessary micros and macros. The exception comes with respect to Mg(it contains some) and Ca. Both of these are major constituents of GH boosters, if you have water that is not terribly hard then I would suggest dosing some sort of a GH booster to ensure you have proper levels of both magnesium and calcium. Short of that it contains everything you are going to need in the majority of tanks.
