Need ferts...not sure where to start...

I am running carbon on my 75g tank at the moment to remove meds so I know any bit of nutrients are also being removed. I am using sand substrate and rocks for my hardscape. Basically I have nothing in the tank that offers any nutrients. Right now in the tank is an Amazon Sword, a couple anubias, some Java Fern, and I plan on getting a bunch of C. wendii. So I know I have a combo of root and leaf feeders. I want to stay simple, I have low/med lights and right now I want to stay away from CO2. I also plan to have shrimp and fish and MTSnails...but at the moment the tank is empty of livestock.

Take a look at Seachem Flourish. It is a popular liquid fert. The same company makes root tabs as well.

lots of people here use flourish - make sure you get Flourish Comprehensive (they have a number of products)

I agree, Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive Supplement. Dose once a week should be sufficient.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
