Fertilizer Recommendations?

If you ask me, you don't need fertilizer. Your goldfish should be sufficent at producing fertilizer for your plants :) . Besides, I've been warned plant fertilizer can fuel a nasty outbreak of diatoms (like I have) which are pretty hard if not impossible to get rid of. I've always viewed plant fertilizer for aquariums as sort of a "snake oil" product....but that's just me.

P.S- I have plants and they do fine without fertilizer :) just make sure they have good root systems and substrate to hold on to.

I used to use plant gro fertilizer and it did alright but it caused some algae outbreaks so I don't use it anymore. Ever since I bought fluorite substrate they do pretty good with just that and some good lighting.

I've been thinking about buying some flourite for my tropical tank and just keeping the moss balls/moss in the GF tank. I have a feeling that when the goldies get bigger the flourite would get dirty quick if I used it...
