    Well I am new to planted tanks and I'm looking to buy some fertilisers for my aquarium
    I was looking into the seachem line and I saw the regular flourish liquid and root tab form. My plants will be some baby tears, needle leaf java fern, anubias, subwassertang and some other plants I will get to later on,like some sword plants and others like it... well back to the point, I was wondering which of these I should get and if I really have to get both, which one should I get first? I will definitely get the java fern, subwassertang, frogbit and baby tears first so what should I do?

    You should really research the plants you are planning on getting, especially the dwarf baby tears. They are a high light, CO2 needing Plant, and you need the correct substrate for them to grow.

    Try and use this site to help you research the plants you are looking at.

    It's not dwarf it's just the regular baby tears

    Is it hemianthus micranthemoides, not hemianthus callitrichoides?
    What is the scientific name?

    What kind of lights do you have? Will you be using CO2?

    So if I don't get the sword plants, which I probably won't get for now, should I first buy the liquid form?

    You'll probably need both, so yes.

    Wait what

    I know I'll eventually get both but first the liquid right?
