What is the best fertiliser combo to does with?

I went to pick some up today and there are many different options
Potassium
Iron
Flourish
Excel
Trace


I am using them in a low to moderate tech set up.

Anubias
S.repens
AR minis
Hornwort
Java fern and Moss
Etc....

NPK + CSM+B Package - NilocG Aquatics

This would be my choice.
Dosed at a low PPS Pro dosage.
It is much cheaper than buying liquids.
Make your own liquid bottles.

Dry ferts. Liquid ferts are a waste of money - you are paying 100x more for bottles of water.
saty and saty like this.

The Plant Guy in Winnipeg has dry ferts. Here is his PPS-pro package.

The PlantGuy- Canadian Aquarium Plants

I bought some osmocote capsules from him, I used it on a gravel substrate tank (my other tanks have soil, so don't need complete ferts for a year or two). If you want, pm me and I'll give you a few for your tank. If it works, you can get some more!

Most of my tanks get K, Fe, and Excel only. They are low tech. The fish/substrate supply the rest.
