Re: Has anyone used this fertilizer?

I used this when I was in a hurry to get some N-P in the tank during a period 
of high growth, apparently not enough fish, and high co2. My tank was running 
0 on nitrates and 0 on phosphates, and the plants looked they could use some. 
I didn't have time to futz together and mix of a batch of homemade stuff, so 
I picked this up and used it for a while. I can't tell you how much n-p it 
actually added to the water though. The concentrations are very low. At the 
time, I was really busy and couldn't really test and monitor. Fortunately the 
plants perked up and it worked for me. I don't know if I'd use it if I had a 
problem with nitrates or phosphates, or algae.

Flourish has more nutrients and less n-p.
