Hi Amber

You can get dry ferts from two places:
Rex Grigg
Aquarium Fertilizer

You need:
Macro's
KNO3 - potassium nitrate for dosing nitrate and potassium
KH2PO4 - monopotassium phosphate for dosing phosphate and a very tiny amount of potassium
K2SO4 - (optional, but many people use it) for dosing potassium

GH
If your water is soft, you may need to get Barr's GH Booster, Grumpy's GH Booster or Seachem's Equilibrium.

Micro's (trace)
Plantex CSM+B, or Tropica's Plant Nutrition liquid, or Seachem's Flourish
Many people prefer Tropica's Plant Nutrition liquid over the other trace products.

Rex's combo pack will get you started for $18.10 including shipping. "Combo Pack. 1 lb KNO3, 1 lb K2SO4, lb each of KH2PO4 and Plantex CSM+B - $13 Shipping on the Combo pack is $5.10"

Good luck!
