Where to order EI dry ferts?

I would like to get more serious about dosing. I currently use the full line of Seachem liquids ferts as per their suggested dosing chart. This method is too expensive and lean. I would like to get into EI. I was hoping someone could direct me to a good website to buy from in the US. Here are some sites I have found so far.

Green Leaf Aquariums
aquariumfertilizer.com
NilocG Aquatics | Aquarium Fertilizer

I would also like to know exactly what products to buy from whatever website you think is best. I would like to keep things as simple as possible so I mostly like will buy some sort of complete package.

The tank is a 20L medium-high light tank with DIY Co2 (pressurized soon) and 1.7x Excel daily. The tank is heavily planted with fast and slow growers.

I just made my first order of dry ferts and they came from NilocG. I was really happy with the purchase, very quick shipping. I ordered the EI with gh booster pack.

I have ordered a few times from NilocG. Always quick shipping and great products. Can either order on here or through his website.

If you are ordering dry ferts specifically for the purpose of dosing the EI method then get a package with the correct quantities. You will be going through 4x as much kno3 as you will kh2po4 and csm+b. Also, unless you have very hard water then I would suggest getting gh booster to ensure that you have enough Mg and Ca.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks

Would this product include all the the macros and micros I need?

DIY EI LIQUID FERTILIZER+GH booster

2 years of ferts for a little over 30 bucks is awesome.

NilocG is always a pleasure to deal with.
Great product, great price and quick delivery.
