Haha thank you angel, and for the links. Believe me if you knew me in real life, you'll have NO idea how paranoid I can be ;)

Well...I've decided. I'm going to go ahead and buy the plants (once they restock) and give it 2-3 weeks. If it doesn't seem to be working, Then I'll buy one fertilizer and go for a while. I may or may not end up returning the fert and getting another (I will get the Tetra first, then API). I'll also see the shipping on Pet Solutions (the main problem is horrid shipping costs). Thank you guys, so so much, and thanks for dealing with me !!

You're welcome. Good luck with the plants, and keep us posted after they arrive.

Alright, don't be disappointed if they're not up for a month, we still need to buy something that read's our camera's memory card. My family is...just that lazy. I'll try not to forget, haha~

Adding to the good luck wishes. But also wanted to suggest once you receive your plants and plant them unless you really see significant signs after 2 weeks eg yellow leaves, pin holes etc it will take the plants a lil while to establish and then thrive when they're newly plants and also some plants like crypts will melt a little bit after shipping so that's normal to loose leaves there at first. Let the plants establish and then go from there as far as ferts needed.

Yup, I'll definitely take that into consideration.
