Im going to develop a fertiliser for my own use- I might try to sell it later in the classifieds section.

I use Seachem Flourish Comp. It's seemed to work pretty well, but I think my main problem is lighting, which is probably why my plant growth is so slow.

I currently use Flourish Comprehensive. Dispensing could be a little easier with a top that allows for a drop at a time.

Same as Fish Monger: I use Seachem Flourish Comprehensive, I have a 10g tank, and it took me quite a while to work out the dose at 60 drops per teaspoon. I would like to dose NPK as well.

Another Seachem Flourish Comp. user here along with root tabs for the swords. I'm pretty happy with the outcome but it took a very long time to get there.

I went for Brand name.


Mainly because I know sod all about doing it myself etc and tbh most of you lot recommend it (seachem flourish comp), so I became a sheep and it worked out great for me.

Hey! We sheep need to stick together. ha ha I also use Seachem's Comprehensive and am happy being a sheep. I go with the "If it's not broke, don't fix it theory".

Baaaaaaaaaaaa! I know we do, I just literally know nothing of what th competition out there offers comparatively and I've never seen anyone knock seachem so just went for that.

My plants have grown great- in 4 weeks my cabombas have gone from 15 to 60cm and my anubias, for a slow growing plant has sprouted some very good new growth. The rest of the plants have all "flourished" (pun intended) too
