Have not had much luck growing plants in the past. looking to upgrade my lighting (a separate thread) but also looking to possibly add some fertilizers to the mix. I am hoping to have something I can dose with water changes every week or two to give my plants a boots and fight algae a little bit. I have heard flourish excel suggested for algae prevention and Thrive C suggested as a good all in one. Do I need both or would Thrive C help prevent algae on its own. could I get away with adding like once a week without water paramentesr fluctuating too much and stressing my fish? Any input would be appreciated. Thank you!
