Can I get kno3 and kh2po4 from seachem products?

As per topic, or can i get those elements from another widely available source. Where I live, gregwatson is not really an option. Thanks

you can look for kno3 in garden centers or hardware store or even the grocercy store..

it's sold as stump remover or salt peter (it's used to preserve meats)... it turns the meat red.

phospate is harder to come by. But phosphate is pretty easy to maintain with just fish poop.

Thanks for the source Tom. I got all the stuff i needed from them to follow your non co2 dosing regime. Also, can i use flourish to replace equilibrium, seeing as how both contain roughly the same trace elements?

Equilibrium is used to replenish nutrients/minerals which are typically lost during R/O filtration. I would use flourish instead.
