Okay so I'm gonna buy some Flourish. I've seen some discussions, and so it's my summary that Flourish is a macro dosage, so i would also need a micro? and that it's also not really a fertilizer as it contains paticularly low amounts of things like nitrogen? so in addition to the flourish what do you guys reccomend for water column dosing of ferts? hope i'm nopt being annoying, just trying to be sure i fully understand.

Flourish is a trace element fertiliser, or a 'micro' fertiliser, since it is only designed to deliver elements needed in microscopic quantities. It only contains nitrates and phosphates by 'accident' I would imagine, certainly the amount is far less than what a plant needs. Seachem also make Flourish Nitrogen and Flourish Phosphorus (and Flourish Potassium?) to supply these 'macros'. Alternatively, you can just buy KNO3 and KH2PO4 powdered fertilisers or similar and dose them to the water column (I'm not sure if you need to dissolve them first, but I would).
