    Has anyone had any experience with this product?? I recently saw it in a garden center and thought I would see what people thought about it.

    According to the label;

    Ntot : 20%
    4.9% : ammoniaca Nl
    2.9% : nitrate N
    12.2% : Urea N

    available phosphate (Ps05): 10%
    Soluble Phospahte (K20) : 15%

    Mg : .5%
    S combined : 3.5%
    B : .01%

    Cu : .05%
    .05% chelated Cu

    Fe : .2%
    .2% chelated Fe

    Mn. : 08%
    .08% chelated Mn

    Mo .0001%
    Zn : .1%
    .1% chelated Zn

    See NH4/urea issues.

    That's why we do not use terrestrial ferts.
    Trees do not have algae etc.
    Nh4 and urea are great for growing algae cultures.

    Thats what I thought you would say. However, I have been using a product which is similar, except has no micro's in it for a while in an outdoor pond I maintain where I am growing java moss, and a few species of Echinodorous, the pond has never really had an algae problem.

    Is bright light what is triggering the algae blooms in aquariums with high
    NH4/urea?

    cause my pond is pretty dark, and like I said, virtually devoid of algae.

    thanks, Andrew
