is it safe to add a plant fertiliser to my aquarium with fish as some of my plants seem to be dying.

yes just read the instructions- you are diluting the chemical, always best to add it to a prepared barrel of water before adding to tank- make it part of your water change routine.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

sponges are the next best thing to using nothing- i would recommend you have atleast one layer of siporax in there, and at teh very least remove the carbon and the white wool.
