Dry fert suggestions

This is my current list of dry ferts to order tommorow from Rex Grigg. I plan to get a pound each:

KN03
KH2P04
K2S04
Trace

Is there anything else I should get? Thanks.

The combo pack he has will last about a year in a 55 gallon tank.

Is the Fertilizer Combo Pack the same thing as what I pasted above?

The combo pack doesn't include a full pound of each:

Fertilizer Combo Pack $14. Shipping is $5.10. Cash based payment price. $20 shipped for Credit/Debit based payment.
1 lb KNO3
1 lb K2SO4
lb Plantex CSM+B
KH2PO4

It's more balanced (proportion-wise) to what you should be dosing. The individual ferts should run out at similar times.

Yep, much better than one pound each. You need less P and Trace. I'd even order more N but that's just me.
