What to use for fertilzer

What is everyone experience with fertilizing?

I think I have a few options.

In the past I used PMDD. Is there any up to date info on this method? If I chose to go with comercial ferts is there any recommended brands? Is it a 1 bottle does all or do I need seperate products to cover all requirements.

Thanks

Mark

Read up on EI in the water parameters forum here, thats a good place to start, theres quite a bit of discussion on the topic you're interested in.

I use the EI method using dry fertilizers from Greg Watson. Rex sells them, too. I'd recommend this method, as it is easy and basically ensures that the plants will have what they need, nutrient-wise. But, I'd also second the idea of doing some research to determine what method suits your needs/desire to do different kinds of work with your tanks. Good luck!

Either will work. I prefer EI myself since I can change specific ratios of N, P, and to a lesser extent, K.

FYI, GW doesn't sell fertilizers anymore. =p
