I'm taking the next step, as I've managed to keep a plant alive for about a year now . I was looking at getting some flourish.... any suggestions?

I split the plant and have each half in my betta tanks. I think it's indian fern or something like that. I know NOTHING about plants. I figured a little liquid help would be good. It's growing i guess.

There's mts that clean the leaves, but no aglae other than that. No signs of deficiency that I can tell...

No need for fertilizing then I would say. If you did add ferts it may upset the balance and let algae take over. If things arent working or you decide to add more plant mass then go for it, but otherwise I would let things go. I hate inviting trouble it always seems so accomodating...lol

Excellent advice from Nate. If you add more plants you might end up needing to add ferts but like he said, "if it ain't broke".....

Brokenwing, Seachem Flourish is just the brand name & product range name. There's everything from root tabs, to individual trace elements to first layer laterite all under the Seachem Flourish heading. Seachem Flourish Comprehensive, Seachem Flourish Iron, Seachem Flourish Iron, etc, etc.
