I currently have a 3 ft tank which is heavily planted with the below plants.
1. Anubias Nana on a Drift-wood
2. Bamboo See-Through Grass
3. Green Mint
4. Riccia on a Drift-wood
5. Christmas Moss on a Drift-wood
6. Baby Tears
The list of fishes include
1. 6 pairs of Neons
2. 4 Pairs of Zebra Danios
3. 3 pairs of Mountain Minnows
4. 2 pairs of Endler's
5. I pair of Mollies(to eat the Algae growth)
I have got 4 PLL 36W tube-lights which I keep on for 10-12 Hours along with a pressurized Co2 system which releases 1 Bubble every 2 seconds.
Based on information on the Net, I procured Macro-Nutrients Potassium Nitrate and mixed 2 Tablespoons of it in 500 ml of Water. I mix 2 ml of this mixture everyday. The plants have really grown well and have started really spreading out across the tank.
My requirement now is to add Micro-Nutrients to ensure the Tank is completely satisfied with both Micro and Macro nutrients. I have read that Microsol-B is a fantastic mixture from Dhanashree Agro - Pune but when I contacted them recently they have replied saying that they only sell Fertilon which again what I understand through reading through old threads is only a IRON Supplement.
They have sent me the below list of Micro-Fertilisers that they currently sell.
1. Fetrilon 13 - EDTA Chelated Iron 12% min
2. Zitrilon - EDTA Chelated Zinc 12% min
3. Fetrilon Combi-2 - Multi micronutrient fertilizer - Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn, B, Mo
4. Basfoliar Kolor - K40% +Mg2%
5. Basfoliar Zn - Zn 55%
6. Basfoliar Cover - Ca 17%
7. Nitrophoska 19:19:19 Water Soluble Fertilizer
Can anyone advice on what is the best Micro Fertiliser than one has used in his/her tank and share their experience / expert advice on the same please?
