Green Leaf Aquariums
EDTA and DPTA are types of iron
Green Dust Algae
Blue Green Algae
CSM+B is a micro fert mix. Calcium Sulfate Magnesium Boron maybe.

As for the last two...
Get A Towel, Adventurer!
Find The Droids!

But I could be mistaken.

The last two I didn't recognize, so I searched for them on this forum to see how they were used; which turned out to have nothing to do with planted tanks:

GATA - "Get After Their Asses" Originally coined by the Legendary Erk Russell, former Defensive Coordinator for the University of Georgia Bulldogs back in the early eighties. Promoted defensive aggressiveness in pursuing the ball carrier.

FTD - Is a florist's association. Say it with flowers.

EI dosing stands for Estimative Index, a method of dosing fertilizers in excess to avoid limiting nutrients.

GSA is green spot algae.
