 I  am  a  beginner  in  fishkeeping.  At  present,  I  have  dwarf  amazon  swords  in  my  tank.  I  have  ordered  hygrophila  compact,  hygrophila  difformis,  cryptocoryne  spiralis  and  cryptocoryne  wendtii  online.  I  have  seen  over  the  internet  that  fertilizer  is  necessary  and  I  am  experiencing  it  because  the  amazon  sword  leaves  are  becoming  brown  and  yellow  very  quickly.  I  have  sand  as  a  substrate.  Is  there  any  general  all-in-one  type  fertiliser  that  I  can  buy?  And  which  would  be  better,  root  tabs  or  liquid  fertilizer?  I  am  so  confused.
 But  I  prefer  and  want  to  have  anubias  and  java  fern  as  they  are  very  easy  to  care  for  any  beginner.

 I  am  a  beginner  as  well,  but  Amazon  swords  are  heavy  root  feeders  and  take  nutrients  from  the  substrate.  So  the  substrate  should  be  nutrient  rich  and  not  inert.  
 You  have  mentioned  that  you  have  used  sand  as  a  substrate  and  this  may  be  an  inert  substrate.  
 
 As  far  as  I  know  there  is  no  good  all  in  one  fertiliser,  some  need  root  tabs,  some  need  additives  in  the  water  column.  Macros  micros  on  alternate  days  or  weekly  once.  
 Some  need  iron  extra  may  be.  Each  plant  type  has  specific  needs.  Tropica  is  a  good  place  for  references.
