I just set up a new 40 gallon tank full of plants and have a fertilizer 
question.  I used Duplarit G in the substrate, and will add Duplaplant 
tablets and Duplagan with water changes.  Question is:  which liquid daily 
fertilizer to use?  I have been using Kent's, but I don't like it that 
much.  Even small amounts seem to instantly (within 24 hours) cause algae 
breakouts.  The current choices are:  stay with Dupla and use the 
Dupladrops.  Second choice is Tropica Master Grow, which gets rave reviews 
on the net and elsewhere; it is also cheaper.

Can someone please advise on whether Tropica MG is compatible with the 
Dupla products as listed above?  Perhaps Karen R. or someone else knows, 
since they use Tropica?  Thanks!
