The problem that I have with choosing fertilizers is that I go to a website and they have 15 different kinds of fertilizers. Is there a simple way to know what the basic fertilizers are that need to be added to a planted tank? It is a 55 gallon with 110 watts of light and DIY co2.

It depends on what type (solid/liquid) and what brand.

For example, I use Seachem, so there's Flourish, Excel, Nitrogen, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, and Trace. I use all of them according to a dosing chart that Seachem came up with as a guideline.

Basically, whichever route you choose, you want a source of N,P,and K (macros) AND a source of Micro nutrients (which may have trace amounts of N,P,or K, but not enough to fullfill you plants' needs).
