KNO3 KH2PO4 search

I am looking for a cheap place to purchase some KNO3 and KH2PO4. I am having a hard time finding some updated information in the forums. Any help would be appreciated

You can get them from a few different places. Green Leaf Aquariums sells ferts or you can try to contact Nilocg on here as he sells ferts. Or if you want to buy a large amount of KNO3 is stump remover if you can get that at you local home improvement store.

As an alternate to the standard approach, an ad in the buy/sell might get you some from folks who have too much or no longer need it as well as finding the normal sellers?
I find NILOCG is an excellent source for mine.

Thanks for the assistance, after a little more research I was able to find what I was looking for. The products looked reputable and > 99% Pure.

Monopotassium Sulfate KH2PO4

Potassium Nitrate KNO3
http://www.seedranch.com/Potassium-N...3-powder-5.htm

If anyone has had any issues with these particular products please let me know before I put them in my Aquarium, I will follow up if I have any issues.

Unfortunately I overlooked the Green Leaf Aquarium suggestion, looks like a great site, I will definitely make some purchases from here in the future.

One link did not work for me but the other showed as five pounds? Depending on your situation but five pounds would be a very large amount for me. I find one pound a better size for me.
