Understanding ferts

Hi everyone.
I have a 60 gallon Discus aquarium with only easy to grow plants (crypts, anubias, hygrophila etc).

I will be downsizing within the next few months for many reasons and i want a planted tank.

The tank will be a 125 litre tank. I use Flourish and Flourish excel at the moment but the other ferts that i have read about confuse me. In my new tank, i want to keep more plants, like Java moss, Glossostigma Elatinoides, Echinodorus Tennellus, Ludwigia and some kind of Rotala.

I plan to have a pressurized CO2 system and Tetra plant undergravel soil.
What kind of ferts will i need for the new tank?

Thanks in advance

i think you may want to rename your thread, this is more of a tell me what i need instead of help me understand.

all plants require, for the most part, the same nutrients. there are 3 or 4 that you really need, N,P,K, and Micro-Nutrients. look for fertz that are high in those nutrients. i use pfertz cus its simple, all i need to do is throw in a few pumps from the bottle and i'm done.

Alot of people recommend dry ferts. spend some time on here reading about ferts and try to decide for yourself what route you want to go.
