Wish fertilizer

I am finishing my Dennerle ferts, and would like to try something else.
What should I go for Flourish or Greg Watsonís ferts (KN03/ K2S04/KH2PO4)?
I understand Flourish is more expensive and more easy to use but with dried ferts you have more control of what you are dosing.
Any recommendation welcome.

You pretty much answered your question there. Although I think you have as much control with one as the other. If you have a larger tank (anything over 20 gal IMO), it's much more economical to use dry ferts for your macros. Personally I use Flourish for the traces and iron, dry ferts for the macros.

If you're in Cyprus, the country, I don't think gregwatson.com will be able to ship ferts to you. You'll need to find a local source for them. If you have any agricultural supply stores in the area they'd be a good place to start. Also try contacting the local parks/golf courses and ask where their groundskeepers obtain their lawn care supplies.

If you increase your fish load and feeding schedule to a degree, you will not need to dose Nitrogen/Phosphate.

Actually, I think Greg has shipped over-seas. In fact, the post I'm thinking of, he even purchased a set of U.S. measuring spoons for the guy because he had no access to them.

I'd just email him and ask. From all I've heard, he's a really nice, friendly guy...at the very worst he'd say "sorry, I don't ship overseas".
Just keep in mind the shipping will be more than the ferts, so you might wanna stock up a little

I went to greg's forum on APC and it does appear that he ships overseas. You need to e-mail him to get a link to an alternative ordering site that equiped for oversea shipments.

Yes I emailed him a couple of weeks ago, he answered pretty quickly and gave me a link to his website for international ordering. Anyway I placed my order this afternoon and the shipping did cost me more than the ferts. Cí est la vie!!!
If you spend quite a bit of money on your set-up and plants - why be tight about the ferts?
Thanks everyone for your advice.
