Which Plant Food?

I just planted order of Anubias from Aquariamplants.com in my 55G of Mbuna. I actually mounted the Anubias on rocks. Looks real nice.

I have 2w/g from AHsupply.com and no CO2.

Which plant food and supplements should I get? I'm concerned about getting a rash of algae if I fertilize too much? (Is that true?) Should I eventually get a CO2 system?

Anubias really don't need ferts (in my opinion). If you wanted to, you could fert VERY SPARINGLY---I like the Seachem Flourish line (Flourish, Iron, Excel trace). CO2 may be overkill as well.

Lots of luck!!!!

Hawaii5-0,

The plants from aquariamplants.com were all healthy and nice looking. They included extra plants of some as well, even though I only requested one of each. Overall, I am very satisfied. I see new root growth already and it's only been a few days. The only negative was that most of the plants were unlabeled. A minor point. Most of them were easy to identify.
