    You can glue plants to like a heavy rock right? I got a new tank and I'm going to glue the plants down to make life eisyer for me at the current place in my life. Also API liquid fertilizer should be good for the mm right?

    Yes, just make sure it is the correct type of super glue to use.

    I think it is called cyranoacrylic or something very similar.

    Super glue/gorilla glue works perfectly fine no need to buy fluval or marineland glue or some other expensive super glue with a different label. Its exactly the same. Cyanoacrylate. I've used both super glue and gorilla glue a thousand times to glue moss/anubias/ferns/bacopa etc. The gel is recommended because it's easier to work with. It pretty much instantly cures when it becomes submeresed. No need to let dry forever. I literally pull out wood/rocks/whatever glue the plant hold it for 15 seconds so it sticks and put it back in the tank filled with fish.

    I used regular superglue, be careful because it turns white underwater, which can be unsightly.

    If you're talking about API leaf zone, it's not really a great fert to use on its own. It only contains potassium and iron, plants need many more other nutrients besides those two.

    Personally I'd use silicone (make sure it's the aquarium safe type though).

    Yeah there are a few others that have higher macro contents, as flourish has very low macros, but for a low tech tank flourish most likely work fine.
