    Hi guys,

    Anyone use the line of ferilozers of seachem?

    I just bought the entire line including Flourish tabs.

    Can give me a hint how to use? Should i use Flourish and trace in the same time? Should i use advanced too?

    Felipe Oliveira did a good video of it on his YouTube. Below is a screenshot of his dosing method, note he uses loads of root tabs to make the substrate super rich to get it to work how he wants it.

    Yes, I saw this video.

    And it was for watching the video, and for admiring Filipe Oliveira that I bought the whole line of Seachem.

    I was able to see that Seachem also has its own fertilization guide, but it is very different from Filipe for example.

    So I would also like to have your opinion about this line of fertilizers and how they use it.

    Hi @PhantomNorth

    Yes, I have several Seachem Flourish fertilizers. So, the video was helpful and, no doubt, I will re-visit it from time to time. What dosing regime do you follow? Are you using CO2 injection? Could you please point me to the Seachem fertilization guide?

    Thats pretty much the most expensive water you could buy. Why dont you buy more concentrated fertz or DIY?

    Hi @Thumper

    I am fully aware that it's expensive 'water'. But, I have so many interesting projects on the go that (sometimes) I don't have the time to make up all my ferts. Therefore, I consider my time more valuable than saving a few quid on ferts. Having said that, perhaps you'd like to suggest some suppliers of concentrated ferts? Thanks.

    Sure. Dennerle V30 S7 E15 or the whole Aqua Rebell lineup would be my choice. Source.

    Hi @Thumper

    Thanks a lot. I have looked at those products before and they certainly do look interesting. Have you ever used the Dennerle Dosator?

    Hi,

    After 2 weeks of using the Seachem line, I confess that I did not like or have the patience to be dosing all that. That's why I bought Aquasabi fertilizers with good results.
