Seachem Products or....

I have an 8 gallon planted tank and am using Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive with CO2 injection via paintball tank. I believe I will still need to dose macro nutrients (K, N and PO4). Is there a product out there that has all 3 combined intstead of me having to buy 3 separate bottles of Seachem's K, N and Phosphate?

I don't want to do EI dosing at the moment and especially for a small tank, I want something easier.

Suggestions?

Co2 injection will mean the use of some nutrients. what's your lighting, and how often are you changing water out?

Honestly, theres nothing easier than EI. You take a coffee cup, fill it up with tank water, drop in a few things every day, stir it up, pour it in. Its much, much cheaper as well. As for a bottle of macros, not really.

I am curious about the El dosing as well so any more information on it would be great.

for EI dosing you don't even need to pre mix the ferts, I just dump the dry ferts directly into the water
