75 gallon ferts

What is the best all in one fertilizer to use? I just got this tank running with pressurized c02 and med-high light? (T5 ho 4x54 6500k) I placed some root tabs around the anacharis I planted and some around the small crypts. What else should I do?

Probably Thrive.
For that size of a tank, I would consider using dry ferts. The cost liquid ferts will add up over time.

Best dry ferts in your opinion? Just want something that is simple and has it all.

Does that light sound sufficient over the tank for mid light?

Whatís tank height? I would think the t5ho would be fine with those bulbs.

4 x T5-HO over a 75 is really high light. 130 PAR roughly.
Do the bulbs have individual reflectors? Can you run bulbs separately?

Make sure your pH drop from CO2 is 1.0 - 1.2.

Needed Dry Ferts:
KNO3
KH2PO4
K2SO4
CSM+B
DTPA Fe 11% - if your degassed pH is above 6.5.

You might need MgSO4 and CaSO4 too.

Macro Micro Nutrient Mix (equal parts Plantex CSM + boron, Potassium Nitrate, Potassium Sulfate, Magnesium Sulfate)
Does this sound good? That pH drop sounds just about right. I'm getting a 1.0 drop. My anacharis looks like it's dying out. I've only had it in for a few days but it's not looking too good at the moment.

Sounds like mine - I run two ~6500k bulbs and two pink bulbs.

Thinking of swapping to all pink and put a white led in front
