Old Dog 59 In looking over the specks on the Flourish Advanced and the difference between it and Flourish I'm kind of thinking about changing my Flourish line. The advanced sounds like a very good product and quite an improvement over regular Flourish. I need to get a new bottle of Flourish and I'm going to give the advanced a try.

I agree with adding more plants. You may consider adding a Catappa leaf and/or float it at the top for cover. I too recommend root tabs. You know, there's a different liquid fert called Seachem Flourish Advance. My LFStores don't have 'em in stock. A small bottle can be found online. It has so many good reviews (Of course, it depends on the plant and results vary.) So far, so good. I have a Spec V too. Cheers to that!
He’s much better today! Must have just been stressed from the tank redo, thank you I’ll make sure to check out the seachem flourish advance and yes I use water conditioner and I just got some bacopa which I’m leaving to float.

These are the only ones I buy. More pricey than some but double thick. I need to order more. Thanks for the reminder.

However I do use them quite often in my tanks with weights and placed to the rear of the tank in between large swords and ferns. They then seem to do what I want and give my boys the proper cover they need.

Where would I get the weights from and if I weight them they would be fine? Or would the part the weight is around die? Also are stem plants root or water column feeders?
