Ok this is my setup:
46gallon bow tank
Fluval 303
Osi Co2 Liquid
Flourish Comprehesive plant supplement
Regular Gravel
Triple Tube 36" bulb w/ 2x florasun by zoomed 8500k 1xStock came with strip(I have 6 GE aquarays 9325k bulbs on order coming in soon)
I don't add any other liquids in my tank
I have cardinals, discus, pleco, amano shrimp, ghost shrimp, and bamboo shrimp.
Asian ambulia,Java Lace, Java Moss, Crypt green, Anubias Barteri,Anubias Nana, 2 diff. Water sprites.(looking for more,Idea's welcome)

Now that is my basic setup I am new to this forum and sort of new to the plant world, the information I know about plants are from LFS. I picked that up on the forums I tried reading the Faq pages and everything. But, I don't understand Macro Micro Nitrate Nitrite Phosphorus Iron Potassium CRI and everything else. Terms Rhyzome puzzles me. I wish there was some sort of dictonary or faq page that explains it. I will take all information give to me write it down and post it in the Faq forum for all new people like me. So all information is GREATLY appreciated by me and the new members. Thanks

Rhizome is the "bulb" of plant that the stems come out of, (such as anubis)

Here's a good list of micro and macro nutrients to help you understand that.

As for the rest of the terminology and lingo, don't worry about it. It'll all come to you eventually. You can still be a great plantkeeper and now know any of the lingo.
