    Hi guys,

    I have a newly setup 29 gallon planted tank with medium-high lighting, ADA amazonia substrate and pressurized CO2. I am keeping the following plants: aponogeton ulvaceus, echinodorus 'rose', echinodorus amazonicus, blyxa japonica, hydrocotyle tripartita, tiger lotus, dwarf hairgrass and taiwan moss.

    I am new to high tech setups and was recommended by my LFS to begin dosing fertilisers after 3 months, because of nutrients leaching from the soil. My question is, what type of fertilizers should I dose with? Should I go with EI and dry ferts or should I lean dose with liquid ferts like tropica and seachem? Also, is EI dosing suitable for my setup? To my knowledge, my plants are not as demanding as compared to stem plants.

    Any and all help will be appreciated:)

    There are 2 excellent articles in our website, www.aquariumfertilizer.com, on EI or Estimative Index dosing and PPS or Perpetual Preservation System dosing.
