Does it matter if I pour dry fertilizers straight into my tank, or mix them with water and then dose?

They will work the same, only thing is that the fish may try to eat it if you dose dry. I havent seen any harm to fish, I dose dry
I usually mix mine in a small bowl before adding so no fish try to eat it.
In my main tank with fish I mix it just in case the fish thinks its a snack. In my other tank that has no fish I just pour it in the water.
I just dump it in, the fish nibble it but if it's bad for them they would have died already.
