RE: Aquatic Plant Food 20-10-5

20-10-5??? WOW that's HIGH in nitrates!  I would strongly suggest to NOT
use that in an aquarium unless there's a nitrate deficency, i.e. 0  Then
monitor it closely as this can and possibly WILL cause the nitrates to
skyrocket.  Do a test, take a gallon of bottled watter, and test
nitrates, then put the recomended amount in then check it again in about
30 mins and compare the results :)  Then ask yourself if you want to put
this in your aquarium,  if you have fish then you probably do not want
to add nitrates.

Under most conditions you can add trace elements and be on the safe side
(presuming you have fish in the tank)
