Beginner fertilizer help please
I recently started a 6 or 7 gallon planted cube tank with medium intensity LED light? I added 2 inches of Eco Complete and Anubias Bartei Nana, Anacharis, Dwarf Sag and Water Wisteria. Fish include a Beta, a few other small fish (soon to be added like cardinal tetras or CPD), and a japenese algae shrimp. I plan to add more plants.
I've tried to read a lot about fertilizers and I'm struggling with sifting through all of the information. I'm looking for an easy and relatively inexpensive approach that will have slow to medium growth since I don't want to have to trim my plants too often. I don't want to use CO2 but would be willing to use Flourish Excell, especially at first til my plants grown in more.
What are some good options for ferts for me? I would love to use the natural approach and use as few ferts as possible, especially after my plants grow in more.
Any help, resources, etc. appreciate.
