They will work, the specialised would be my choice if i had to choose one.

How big is your tank, DIY might be a better route

My tank's volume is 54 L.
Here (Bulgaria) is offered Seachem only but I am not delighted by this trademark.

Hi @Federal I have used both in the past and recently started to use Specialized again in one of my tanks. Tropica Specialized provides N and P. Premium provides no N or P and a little less K, but otherwise its the same in terms of traces. Think of Tropica Premium as more of a micro/trace blend (they should market it as such btw....) and Specialized as a "complete" fertilizer as it also provides N and P. So whether you should go with one over the other depends of what other nutrients you dose, if none, go with Specialized. Its a very good product, but unfortunately expensive in the long run if your running a moderately large tank or several tanks etc. I would not hesitate to use it in your case, as you don't really need much more than about 6-10 ml per week (depending on your plant mass) for a 54 L tank. As such a 500 ml bottle should last a year to a year and a half or so.

Cheers,
Michael
