I am not sure exactly what brands you will find at an LFS. I find
mail order convenient and cheaper. There you have several choices.
I think though that it is important to know your tapwater first before
supplementation. You are after all only supplementing your tap - if
there's enough in there, there's no need to supplement. I think that
tap water is deficient, it is most often deficient in a macro
a micro nutrient. Iron may be a popular exception.
Regards finding a solution at the hardware store. I will most
be oriented toward land plants ... with their unique needs. Oftent
not the best way.
Do you have a particular reason for wanting to add a trace element?

Actually yes I do. I had my water tested and it wos found to be lacking
trace elements at the LFS. The only advice that I could get at that
point was Instant Ocean. I would like to find a way to add these
elements without adding salt.(If possible)
