Liquid NPK + M
This product is tailored to the EI dosing method but can be adapted to other dosing techniques
Dosing for full EI levels is 1 pump of each bottle per 10 gallons 3x per week
For lower light/lower tech tanks dosing at 1 pump per 20 gallons 3x per week
For example: For a 20 gallon higher light tank would be as follows-
2 pumps of the micros per day Monday, Wednesday and Friday
2 pumps of the macros per day Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
50% week water change is suggested on the 7th day per EI guidelines followed by addition of the GH booster of your choice(I have some for sale below in the dry ferts section)
Bottles are 16oz each
This will last more than 41 weeks on a 20 gallon tank dosing 3x per week.
Who needs GH booster:
Unless you have very hard water it is very likely that the addition of Gh booster is necessary. Even if you do have hard water unless you know the concentration of both calcium and magnesium adding some GH booster is suggested.
Why is GH booster suggested:
GH booster will add magnesium and calcium as well as add extra potassium which are all very important to plant growth.
For more info about the gh booster here is a link: Gh Booster
Do I need to add extra iron?
For most tanks the iron that is already included in the Liquid M will be enough. But for some high light, high co2 tanks they will require more iron. If that is the case Liquid Iron is a great choice.

Attention: Please store in cool dark location. Do not store in temperatures below 45deg F.

While I cannot comment on the effectiveness of these ferts. I must say I am extremely happy with how fast they arrived. Adding to that, I have a standard 10g aquarium which makes dosing quite complicated and with the "one pump per 10 gallons" I don't think I will ever buy dry ferts again.

Very pleased with the products!
Not only were the macro, micro, iron ferts, and GH boosters sent and received in a timely manner, the care in packaging and shipping was very well done too.
I've noticed a very quick change in how my plants have been thriving with the plant colors being far more vibrant and green, the iron really bringing out the reds in my lilies and ludwigias. With the bacopa I'm seeing a considerable change in growth and nice large leaves coming in, the bits of riccia has exponential growth, new sprouting leaves in my anubias, and wallichii have significant growth with the stems filling in nice and busy. Aside from that I've already had to pull most of my guppy grass and all my frogbit out of my tank as the growth explosion has started taking over the tank.
Dosing is so easy with clear instructions on the bottle labels. There's also dosing instructions on this site so overall this is very helpful and I'd recommend these products to anyone - newly starting into aquatics and seasoned enthusiasts alike.
If I really had to search for any constructive feedback I'd say perhaps have a measuring spoon included for the GH booster as I'm not sure if the other dry ferts on this site do come with measuring spoons or not.
