Not sure how much Rex knows about UK sites. Basically just look for greenhouse grade ferts. They'll be pure enough for our needs, and as long as its still KNO3, K2SO4, then its the same stuff.

keep in mind that gregwatson isn't trying to make a lot of money, just be an outlet to hobbyists, so his prices aren't exactly retail...more like wholesale.

That link was hilarious, but completely true! I love that last line....

Yeah I forgot to mention that when dosing dry the amount of substrate in your tank decreases the actual amount of water in there. So for my 20gallon tank I probably only have about 17gallons of water so that 11ppm is really more like 13ppm. Still not a big difference but for things like KH adjustment might be more important.
