    Currently i have been dosing ADA brighty k and Brighty k step 2. things are Okay... but they are okay..I want super rich colors and healthy plants. What is the best results? Is dry fertilizers the best and where to buy? So far i know about the macro and micro nutrients and the intermediates. But as far as i understand. It seems the best way is to order individually powder supplements and add them through out the week.. Like on Rex Griggs's website. So what do you think?

    Hi,

    I would say that carbon is more important for plant health and vitality than any other macro or micro fert.

    Are you dosing c02 or using a carbon supplement at all?

    Many of us have found that purchasing the dry ferts is very cost effective and lasts much longer. Plus, they are not diluted and dosing is more exact...

    Please provide more tank details? Size, lighting, etc.
