    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?

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

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

    It's neither but here is the eBay link:

    I won't be using co2 and I have low-medium light

    Ah, I think it's just the new name for the same thing.

    Root tabs will be good for the sword plants. Flourish might do it if you fully stock with fish since you're low tech, but just note that flourish has very low numbers of macros.

    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.

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