Hi, I just set up a new tank with plants and fluval stratum. I purchased seachem flourish but it's my understanding that I need to add macro nutrients with it as it doesn't cover everything. Anyone have any suggestions on what I could combine with the seachem that would give my plants everything they need?
I suppose it matters how much light you are using. For a low light tank flourish comp will be fine.

For CO2 higher light you will need to dose macros.
I make my csm+b micro mix similar to flourish comp. It's much cheaper and I get the results I'm after.
Some people dose additional iron as well. I haven't really saw a difference from adding more in my tank vs not. There is iron in the micro mix as well.
Post some more specs on your specific setup
