I would definitely not use that. That is designed for terrestrial plants and the compounds could adversely affect water quality. I can't remember which is the be one but one of those nitrogen components wasn't good to use in aquariums. It be a better idea to stick with the aquarium products, tropica I think as in your other thread, if that's all you had. The percentages of each might also be out a bit.

+1 ^ ^ ^ ^

Would not use in aquarium because it contain Urea as a source of nitrogen, which is not something you want in your tank. Ammonical nitrogen is fine because aquatic plants can use it, it's Urea that can damage your tank.

Read this thread. The most cost effective method long term is dosing dry ferts.
