    Hello,
    In preparation for my first planted tank, I got some JBL NanoFlorapol, which is to be mixed with a substrate and used as a bottom layer with more substrate on top.

    My question is, should I dose macro nutrients as well? In the description of the product it says:
    Bolded parts are my emphasis. They are also what confuse me :)

    The tank is an old Buyo TL-450, 58 l. All the tech has been stripped, and it will be using both a bio filter and spongefilter. Light is a 30 cm lamp with 30x0.2W LEDs (24 white, 10000K, 6 blue, 560nm). I plan on using CO2, have bought a cheap solution and will get a proper setup as soon as it's financially possible (next month most likely).
    Wrt plants, I'd like to be able to choose from these:

    Ludwigia palustris
    Micranthemum umbrosum
    Egeria densa
    Sagittaria subulatum
    Pogostemon helferi
    Cryptocoryne wendtii
    Taxiphyllum barbieri
    Vesicularia ferrei

    Edit to add: I also plan on keeping RCS in there.

    Hi Sorped,

    The JBL NanoFlorapol, Is just a substrate with added plant food. So your plants get off to a good start;)

    I would add ferts to the water from the start. To meet all the plants needs.

    One plant on your list Egeria densa is more of a pond plant it grows super fast and could over shadow your other plants.
