Looking for some feedback as Tropica's plant nutrition is now $109 for 5 liters... I've been using the
Tropica product for the last 1.5 years. I notice that the Flourish Trace product is almost half the price. Are these effectively the same micro fert products?

I've been reading the posts about PPS etc. and so far I'm just confused, I'll keep reading though as I would like to get away from the commercial magic mixes for traces. I'm sure I could be doing as good a job with a much cheaper product.

Thanks for any feedback.

Thanks for the help. I did pull up the two products at http://www.fishfriend.com/fertfriend.html and compared them. Frankly I don't know enough about traces to tell how similar/different they are based on the numbers. I'll go with the general comments that they seem to be relatively interchangeable for a hobbyist like me. So at $30 for 2L or the equivallent of $75 if there were a 5L version as compared to $109 for the 5L of Tropica I'll go with the Flourish and see how it goes.

I'm still reading up on the PPS thing and I've got probably two weeks before I run out of the Tropica product so if anyone would suggest bagging the commercial fluids and going PPS for the micros let me know.

Thanks again for the input.

Orlando, nice to meet you, I'm new here. Can you do the 2L or 4L size of the Flourish? I checked out your site and saw the 500ml size. I'm always happy to support someone I know if possible. When I want to bathe in it I'll call you for the 5 gal size :D.
