I think it’s a good product looking at the reviews on Amazon though I have not used it for my tanks.

It would work out much cheaper for larger tanks. The product is from a company that sells other types of fertilisers.

I use liquid ferts. I use aquatic remedies micros and macros on one of my tanks (alt days with Sunday water change) and using tropica specialised all in one in my other tank (all days)

I know about aquatic remedies, but never used. How is it? Tropica is ptetty expensive, as its too mild, need to dose 2-3times the recomended.

My exp is exactly the opp. Tropica is pretty concentrate and we use in limited quantities. Where as aquatic remedies is more cost effective but more diluted.

Some say Ada ferts are better and more balanced I have never tried them. Tropica is working well for me.

My tank is heavily planted and high co2 and high light. However comparing the constrate w/w % of tropica and urkarsh csmb, utkarsh is highly concentrated.

why not make your own mix based on the dry chemicals? am sure many of those micro chemicals and Iron are available in India. I have helped @Tejas Kadam, see what he have to say. Tropica is one of the best, I would rate it #1 in comparison to any other fertilizer out there

I make my own Macro, Micro CSMB is better. Imported CSMB costs 400-500 per 100gms, whereas Utkarsh sells 250gms for only 350rs. Works for 4-6years depending on usage.
