I am gonna be ordering some dry ferts in the next day or two and was wondering what would be a good amount to start with? I have really hard water so dont think I need the GH Boosters but was planning on starting out with CSM-B or Miller MicroPlex (Opinions on which is better???), KNO3, and KH2PO4. Does this sound good? Should I get a lb of each? or 1/2lb of the micro and a lb each of the others? Seems to me I will be using alot more KNO3 than anything else and have limited money right now to get started.

THanks in advance, Ben

Yes I have. Guess what I'm looking for is do I order more of one vs the other? Or what would b a good amount of bulk ferts to get to get started, not the doses for my tank.

a pound of each is a good place to start with. next time you will know what you will use more of or not.

CSM-B vs Miller MicroPlex
i dont see it mentioned often but volume wise 1 pound of csm = 1/2 pound of microplex.
