    I recently started a 6 or 7 gallon planted cube tank with medium intensity LED light? I added 2 inches of Eco Complete and Anubias Bartei Nana, Anacharis, Dwarf Sag and Water Wisteria. Fish include a Beta, a few other small fish (soon to be added like cardinal tetras or CPD), and a japenese algae shrimp. I plan to add more plants.

    I've tried to read a lot about fertilizers and I'm struggling with sifting through all of the information. I'm looking for an easy and relatively inexpensive approach that will have slow to medium growth since I don't want to have to trim my plants too often. I don't want to use CO2 but would be willing to use Flourish Excell, especially at first til my plants grown in more.

    What are some good options for ferts for me? I would love to use the natural approach and use as few ferts as possible, especially after my plants grow in more.

    Any help, resources, etc. appreciate. As specific as possible would be awesome.

    Thanks, Doug

    Based on your wishes (the natural apporach) I think Diana Walstad's method would be suitable to you. If you do a realted search on the web I'm sure you'll get numerous articles about how to.
