which fert to use?

Hello all.. I have a 2 gal hexagon tank with a halfmoon double tail prakat male with one Temple Hygrophilia Corymbosa planted in gravel. The tank is heated and filtered.... I want to add a second plant today and would welcome any suggestions for a fertilizer and a water test kit that is reasonably priced

Thank you for any speedy replies

Excel and Potassium with lights seems to help this plant grow fast. it is a low light fast growing plant to begin with, trim often and stick the stem in the substrate to speed up growth.

Aqueon Plant Food will work just fine. but be careful not to OD the ferts as it will promote algae growth too.
