Need help with GLA Ferts

I recently purchased a full co2 setup, and now I am looking into purchasing Fertilizers.

My tank mainly consist of the following:

Java ferns
Christmas moss
Baby Tears (carpet)

I am not sure which fert package to get. I am stuck between the

PPS-Pro Fert pack, or the Estimative index pack.

Can you please shed some light for me on which package would be better for me to get?

Go with EI (Estimative Index) - less hassle and guestimations.

Going with EI should be enough for all the dosing i'll need for my tank?

What kind of hassle and guestimations are you referring about, for the Pro pack?

What's in your water? If your tap has enough phosphates, you won't need to add phosphates. If it has high nitrates, you won't need to add nitrates. If it has high potassium (which is rare) you won't need to add K.
