Hello all I am wanting to get some opinions on what ferts are a essential for a planted tank. I realize that there are a lot of different variables to what ferts, dosing, type of plants, lighting, CO2 etc... But is there any products out there that deliver an all in one type of fert? Or something that contains a good variety of supplementation? If not what is the best combination of ferts that would provide fast, lush, healthy plant growth?

The pro plant is alright but lacks a lot of nutrients and because you are buying it mixed you are paying for a lot of water.dry ferts that you mix are the way to go unless you have just one tank or one that's not to big.With the MMN mix that I use you add 1/4 cup to 2 cups water and lasts for weeks and there is enough for many batches.Some people on this forum sell ferts also...
