dry fert for 10 gal

im thinking off buying dry ferts, for my 10 gal
but first

what are the main fertilizers i should get? i was aimmin more for just KNO3

and thats all, for 10 gallon should i dry dose or make a solution, as i saw that dry dosing is usually for larger tanks

Dose it dry. That's what I did for my 10 gallons.

KNO3, KHPO4, CSM+B (traces).
