I want to get into EI dosing. Where can I buy a dry fert "kit"

So I've pretty much been a bad botanist for the past, I don't know, 6 months? Hand I haven't fertilized my tank at all. I have just about all the seachem liquid ferts, but I've never actually noticed an improvement with them.

I've been exceptionally bad because I'm running high light and co2.

I've been lurking all over the place recently, and I saw a "kit" made up with 4 of the dry ferts (which I'm pretty sure are the standard ones) but I didn't bookmark it, and now the only place I can find one is from that company in the UK.

I would prefer to purchase from inside the US. I don't really want to have to wait several weeks for my ferts to show up. Does this exist? I could have sworn what I saw was priced in USD.

Thanks for the help!

This guy sells dry ferts separately or premixed. He's here in the U.S. and got premixed dry ferts out to me in a few days where all I had to do was add water and dose.

I can't say how well they're working, really, as I never had these plants without these ferts so I don't know what they would look like without them. For what it's worth, though, my plants seem to be doing just fine and possibly growing some. Worth a look.

I've also seen Green Leaf aquariums linked to from here.

Is that helpful?

Look in the for sale section and find his "price match guarantee" thread.
It also has EI liquid in a kit which contains the bottles.
In the sub headings of the section under power sellors.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I want to start giving things in RAOK instead of only trying to get them.
