It has been almost a decade since I have set up a fish tank so I feel a bit lost. (check out my join date!) I have done a lot of research and will be setting up a low tech 20 gallon long in the next week or 2. I am in the process of ordering all the equipment needed and have everything figured out except for ferts.

I will be using the current satellite plus light fixture and an aquaclear 50 filter. The plants will be mainly moss, ferns, anubias, dwarf sag. Easy stuff.

So, I am unsure as to what ferts I should use. Algae is a big concern of mine!

Would I be good with this modified EI fert schedule?:

excel everyday

CSM+B 1/8 tsp on monday

K2SO4 1/8 tsp
KNO3 1/2 tsp
KH2PO4 1/8 tsp

50% water change weekly.

Or is there an easier way for me to do this? Thoughts? Thanks guys!
