Hi I'm looking for advice on liquid firtilisers. At the minute I use tetra plantamin and was wondering if there were any other suggestions or better liquid firtilisers.
Just so you know I'm having no problems with this brand apart from price lol

I usually recommend SeaChem Flourish Comprehensive (NOT Excel, it's not a fertilizer but a CO2 supplement) as it's more concentrated. So the price may look worse, but you use less of it compared to other products usually. For small tanks you normally use 1 drop per gallon once or twice a week depending on how many plants you have. If you have a very heavily planted tank, then you could potentially go 2 drops per gallon twice a week. But if you use too much, you'll end up with lots of algae. It's a balancing act, so you just have to try it and find out what works specifically for your tank ^_^ Just because it works for one tank won't mean that it works for other tanks the same way of course!
